As of Wednesday, August 16, 2017, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has released new installation images of its Debian-based Raspbian Linux operating system rebased on Debian GNU/Linux 9 "Stretch" series.

Things were quite calm this week, so I really didn’t have any real reason to delay the 4.12 release. As mentioned over the various rc announcements, 4.12 is one of the bigger releases historically, and I think only 4.9 ends up having had more commits. And 4.9 was big at least partly because Greg announced it was an LTS kernel. But 4.12 is just plain big.
