No, wheezy because LCNC still runs on it. I understand a stretch release, 
probably with an old 3.something rt kernel for a kernel is being worked 
on. There are hideous problems with irq latency in later 64 bit kernels 
so they are not able to do the stuff LCNC needs to do in anything 
resembling realtime.

Frankly, I'd just as soon rip it out.  I'm not knowingly using it and 
neither is LCNC and its turned into a huge security liability I sure 
don't need to have to worry about.
