Every Netrunner is based on a snapshot of Debian Testing. There is no non-testing release. It is similar like Manjaro: One can install any version and update from there to any latest packages by enabling backports+testing repo.
The snapshot releases are just a momentarily frozen copy of ongoing testing for stable release purposes.
Well, all repos are enabled, but still my installation of 17.01.2 won't update to this new one, Plasma is still 5.8.6, none of the changes that are mentioned in the release news is there, so it seems that you guys made it so we need a fresh install instead of being able to upgrade

Sorry for starting 2 threads on a similar topic of updating to Netrunner Desktop 17.03.
By not using backports & testing repos, could Netrunner Desktop 17.xx be a "stable" OS, once the "Debian 9 (Stretch)" stable release, is out?

Almost 20 days later, and still nothing, so please tell me if I have to backup all my stuff, download the new ISO and do a clean install, and waste time making the desktop the way I like it instead of waiting for a theoretical update
Ok, finally the new packages show up on the update list, but I have a question, update says (using Synaptic) that it will remove the package netrunner-desktop........is that right? Won have any problems after?
