The Debian Installer team[1] is pleased to announce the second alpha
release of the installer for Debian 9 "Stretch", live from the DebConf
Birthday Party in Heidelberg, Germany!

Important change in this release of the installer

 * The biggest change in this release is the update of the linux kernel,
   from the 4.0 series to the 4.1 one.

Other improvements in this release

      image (#793118).
