        And use Debian testing Xfce

        Stock kernels have buggy amdgpu driver, see diff from kernel.org, very little new code.

          Too bad, Mesa 17 didn't make it in.

            Yeah, well, you have to draw the line at some point.

            But hey, you can use backports

              I'm using testing, so this will affect me for the freeze period mostly. Also, you can just build Mesa from source for specific applications.

              What is more annoying is libreoffice 5.3.0 which didn't make it in. That one has some good bug fixes, like icons for KDE breeze-dark.

                PHP 7.1 is also missing. That's unfortunate, 7.0 will EOL before stretch reaching LTS phase, while 7.1 is also supported one year longer than 7.0.

                  It is not annoying, 5.3.0 was released at 1. february and freeze is on 5 february, there was no 10 days delay and that release will need more fixes.

                  Mesa 17 is not released yet, altough as i see you have mesa 17-rc3 in experimental if you wants it, same as libreoffice 5.3.0...

                  Debian Stable prefer higher point releases than actual first 0 releases, some of these are not even released yet

                  Freeze is freeze people, one can't roll and freeze nor run and sit down in the same time

                    Also some statistic, Jesse Freeze was 5 and half months with double more RC bugs then this one has at beggining, so maybe we can tip that this one might be less frozen... smells like june to me, maybe.

                    3 months is the minimum, so maybe about 4 or so months debianxfce won't (t)roll
