Where is Remmina in Debian 9 Stretch?

I'm so happy with new release of Debian 9 Stretch but with fresh installation of Debian, I have "small" problem - can't find package remmina.

At first I couldn't believe, so I checked the news for the new Debian and didn't find anything. On the official web site of Remmina I found confirmation that Remmina has been removed from Strech but will be added to the backports, and the reason is the older version of Remmina 1.1.x. When come Remmina 1.2.x new Remmina will back in backports.

After a month of waiting there is still no package so I decided to make a backport package from Debian Buster (Testing) and add it to my repository . Feel free to use it and enjoy in the best remote connectivity tool.


Example of installation:

echo "deb stretch main contrib non-free" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jurisic.list
wget -q -O- | apt-key add -
apt-get update
apt-get install remmina
