Why is it that Etch incremented the major version number (3.1 to 4.0), but
Lenny will increment only the minor version number (4.0 to 4.1)?
Etch had a lot of major changes. Sarge had kernel 2.4 or 2.6, Etch
had just 2.6. Sarge had Xfree86 (X11R6), Etch had Xorg (X11R7).
Sarge had GCC 3.x while Etch uses 4.x. Etch has D-bus 1.0.x,
Sarge had 0.23 or some such. Oh, and Etch has the new installer.
Anyway, the changes between Etch and Lenny will not be nearly
as large as the changes between Sarge and Etch. Lenny will still
have GCC 4.x, Xorg 7.x, kernel 2.6.x, etc (minor version updates).
And maybe amd64 support is important.
