Release Update

Marc Brockschmidt reported about the status of the upcoming stable release. After some major transitions, like the ocaml transition Lenny is in good shape, but still a lot of work needs to be done. Since the armel architecture made great improvements the release team decided to upgrade it to a proper release architecture.
Regarding Lenny the Qt/KDE Packaging Team decided that the upcoming release will be shipped with KDE 3.5.9 (and with the KDE 4.1 development platform: kde4libs, kdepimlibs and kdebase-runtime).
