The world’s most stable upstream Linux distro has just announced a point upgrade on its latest Debian 9 Stretch release. The latest version is 9.3, it comes with many corrections and improvements on the security front as well as some adjustments to cater to some other serious issues. The point release is not a new version of Debian 9 but only updates are added, so users do not need to throw away the old installation media as users can easily upgrade to an up-to-date system using an updated mirror.
So from the release, we know that this is not a major release and that only a number of packages have been upgraded for bug fixes and security reasons. Users on Debian can just update their system to take advantage of these improvements.
