I recently upgraded to Debian Testing, currently Stretch. In Jessie, the cli tool to manage the fan control was

# aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 50"`

However, in Stretch, this tool was removed. Where did it go, can I get it back, or is there an equivalent to replace it?

The problem is that AMD stop supporting unix based system that's why it was removed from repositories.

More on this: The AMD Catalyst Legacy driver - supporting the Radeon HD 2000/3000/4000 series - is not available for Debian 8 "Jessie", as upstream has not updated the driver for newer Xorg releases

and in the bug report :

Upstream hasn't produced an update for a couple years now even though the package is entirely broken: http://bugs.debian.org/726500
