This weekend's point release had been planned for a long time, and was
originally going to be called 9.7. But then due to the major security
fix needed for apt  and the new installation media etc. also
needed, we decided to publish a minimal 9.7 release out of sequence
with just that change. What was going to be 9.7 became 9.8 instead.
