While it will be quite some time before seeing Debian 9.0 "Stretch", the Debian Installer has put out their third alpha release already for Stretch.

Debian 8 was just released earlier this year while new Debian Installer alphas have been quick to surface. Just shy of one month since the DI Stretch Alpha 2 is now the third alpha.

Debian Installer Stretch Alpha 3 brings a workaround for issues with GCC5 breaking the mini.iso, priorities were updated for a number of packages, a beep has been added to the UEFI x86 boot menu, new MIPS images, and a variety of other changes.

More details on Debian Installer Stretch Alpha 3 can be found via the announcement.
