For what it's worth, I always run the very latest packages from Slavek's PSB 
repository, and use sid packages for everything to do with Trinity, as well 
as in one or two other places that need something more up-to-date. 

Yet my actual system (on two different machines) is Devuan Jessie and Devuan 
Ascii (= Jessie & Stretch in Debian). I wouldn't recommend this for other 
software, but it works best for me when using Trinity. So I wouldn't be too 
worried about whether it will run on Debian Testing, at least for my self and 
on my own machines. 

The only glitch is that I still have an issue with that "r14-xdg-update script 
problem", which is discussed quite a lot over the past few weeks. Nothing has 
been resolved there, but my machine runs just fine, except for some 
notifications that I get when booting up. As I intend to invest in some new 
equipment very soon, I hope that these annoying little bugs will also 
disappear by upgrading to Beowulf/Buster or beyond.
