The announcement of d-i releases contains most of the information
you're looking for:

alpha1: http://debian.org/devel/debian-installer/News/2010/20100221
upcoming beta: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/ReleaseAnnounce

alpha got dropped as a release architecture for arm.

arm has been dropped since it has been obsoleted by the armel port.  I
believe the release note contains a paragraph about this change
already.  At least I recall submitting a patch about this.

For armel, you can mention the following:

Support for Marvell's Kirkwood platform was added.  In particular, the
following devices are supported:
 - QNAP TS-110, TS-119, TS-210, TS-219, TS-219P and TS-419P
 - Marvell SheevaPlug and GuruPlug
 - Marvell OpenRD-Base, OpenRD-Client and OpenRD-Ultimate
