Overview

For the stretch release, the Debian version of the GNU GCC 6 compiler now defaults to compiling “position independent executables” (PIE). Accordingly the vast majority of all executables will now support address space layout randomization (ASLR), which is a mitigation for a number of exploits that are now probabilistic rather than deterministic.

Debian stretch includes only version 6 of the GNU GCC compiler, which may impact users expecting version 4.x or 5.x to be available. See the GCC5 andGCC6 wiki pages for more information about the transition.

Debian now provides a new additional service called deb.debian.org. It provides the content of the main archive, the security archive, ports and even our new debug archive (see Section 2.2.8, “A new archive for debug symbols”) under a single easy to remember hostname.

This service relies on the new DNS support in APT, but will fall back to a regular redirect for HTTPS access or older versions of APT. More details are provided on deb.debian.org.

Besides several new packages and updates for software targeting life sciences and medicine, the Debian Med team has again put a focus on the quality of the provided packages. In a GSoC project and an Outreachy project, two students worked hard to add Continuous Integration support to the packages with the highest popularity-contest usage statistics. The latest Debian Med sprint in Bucharest also concentrated on package testing.

To install packages maintained by the Debian Med team, install the metapackages named med-*, which are at version 3.0.1 for Debian stretch. Feel free to visit the Debian Med tasks pages to see the full range of biological and medical software available in Debian.
