Welcome to the forum

I'm not aware of any release in the time frame you've mentioned, however, Jessie 8.2 was released on September 5th, 2015. If you wish to install a copy, you can download the .iso's here. Be sure to read the message that is in the yellow box with the red stop sign.

Also, you should remove your e-mail address from your post, otherwise your inbox might get filled with SPAM very soon!

Ian Murdoch is indeed a loss. Even though he has not been involved directly with Debian for some time, he made great contributions to Linux and FOSS, or which Debian may be his longest-lasting. Nevertheless, I'm not sure you can do what you want to do, which, as I understand it, is to sort of "freeze-frame" a specific iteration of Debian.

Debian doesn't quite work like that. Debian Stable is Debian stable and Debian testing is a moving target. Finding a version within a specific narrow timestamp would be quite challenging.

You can install the latest Stable, then update it to testing, but I suspect that you cannot freeze it in time.

Good luck and welcome to LQ.
