> The Debian Project is pleased to announce the release of Debian GNU/Linux
> version 3.0.  Debian GNU/Linux is a free operating system, which now
> supports a total of eleven processor architectures, includes KDE and GNOME
> desktop environments, features cryptographic software, is compatible
> with the FHS v2.2 and supports software developed for the LSB.
> With the addition of the IA-64 (ia64), HP PA-RISC (hppa), MIPS (mips,
> mipsel), and S/390 (s390) architectures, Debian GNU/Linux now supports a
> total of eleven architectures.  It now runs on computers ranging from
> palmtops to supercomputers, and nearly everything in between, including the
> latest generation of 64 bit machines.
> This is the first version of Debian that features cryptographic software
> integrated into the main distribution.  OpenSSH and GNU Privacy Guard are
> included in the default installation, and strong encryption is now present
> in web browsers and web servers, databases, and so forth.  Further
> integration of cryptographic software is planned for future releases.
> For the first time, Debian comes with the K Desktop Environment 2.2 (KDE).
> The GNOME desktop environment is upgraded to version 1.4, and X itself is
> upgraded to the much improved XFree86 4.1.  With the addition of several
> full-featured free graphical web browsers in the form of Mozilla, Galeon,
> and Konqueror, Debian's desktop offerings have radically improved.
> This version of Debian supports the 2.2 and 2.4 releases of the Linux
> kernel.  Along with better support for a greater variety of new hardware
> (such as USB) and significant improvements in usability and stability, the
> 2.4 kernel provides support for the ext3 and reiserfs journaling filesystems.
> Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 features a more streamlined and polished installation,
> which is translated into numerous languages.  The task system has been
> revamped and made more flexible.  The debconf tool makes configuration of
> the system easier and more user friendly.  Debian GNU/Linux can be installed
> from CD, or from the network and a few floppies.  It can be downloaded now,
> and will soon be available on CD-ROM from numerous vendors
> <http://www.debian.org/CD/>.
> Upgrades to Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 from earlier releases are automatically
> handled by the apt package management tool.  As always, Debian GNU/Linux
> systems can be upgraded painlessly, in place, without any forced downtime.
> For detailed instructions about installing and upgrading Debian GNU/Linux,
> please see the release notes
> <http://www.debian.org/releases/woody/releasenotes>.
> This is the first release of Debian that is compatible with version 2.2 of
> the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS).  Debian GNU/Linux now also supports
> software developed for the Linux Standard Base (LSB), though it is not yet
> LSB certified.
> Current Debian users may be interested to know that this release of Debian
> supports build dependencies, to aid in building packages from source, and
> apt pinning, to ease partial upgrades to our testing or unstable branch.
> This release of Debian features aptitude as an alternative for the
> venerable dselect program, which will make it easier to select packages.
> About four thousand new software packages were added to the distribution in
> Debian GNU/Linux 3.0.
> About Debian
> ------------
> Debian GNU/Linux is a free operating system, developed by nearly a thousand
> volunteers from all over the world who collaborate via the Internet.
> Debian's dedication to Free Software, its non-profit nature, and its open
> development model make it unique among GNU/Linux distributions.
> The Debian project's key strengths are its volunteer base, its dedication
> to the Debian Social Contract, and its commitment to provide the best
> operating system possible.  Debian 3.0 is another important step in that
> direction.
