While Debian 9.0 "Stretch" isn't due out for more than a year, the fourth alpha of the Debian Installer for Stretch has been released.

The Debian Installer Stretch Alpha 4 release has various hardware support improvements, accessibility support by default is now enabled for GTK2 applications and improved for Qt4/Qt5 applications, and various other changes took place.

Additionally, the full CD sets of Debian were removed. This comes from the Debian decision earlier this year to stop producing new CD ISOs.
