> compatibility with the FHS v2.3 and software developed for
> version 3.2 of the LSB.</p>

> allow Debian source packages to be cross-built and shrunk to suit embedded ARM systems.</p>
> <p>Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 (Lenny) includes the new ARM EABI port, <q>Armel</q>. 
> This new port provides a more efficient use of both modern and future ARM 
> processors. As a result, the old ARM port (arm) has now been deprecated.</p>
> <p>This release includes numerous updated software packages, such as
> the K Desktop Environment 3.5.10 (KDE), an updated version of the GNOME
> desktop environment 2.22.2, the Xfce 4.4.2 desktop environment, LXDE

> <p>The inclusion of OpenJDK, a free version of Sun's Java technology,

> in the standard installation as well as building several
> security-critical packages with GCC Hardening features. Various

> <h2>Dedication</h2>
> <p>Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 <q>Lenny</q> is dedicated to Thiemo Seufer, a Debian Developer who
> died on December 26th, 2008 in a tragic car accident.
> Thiemo was involved in Debian in many ways.  He has maintained several
> packages and was the main supporter of the Debian port to the MIPS
> architectures.  He was also a member of our kernel team, as well as a
> member of the Debian Installer team.  His contributions reached far
> beyond the Debian project.  He also worked on the MIPS port of the
> Linux kernel, the MIPS emulation of qemu, and far too many smaller
> projects to be named here.</p>
> <p>Thiemo's work, dedication, broad technical knowledge and ability to
> share this with others will be missed. The contributions of Thiemo will
> not be forgotten.  The high standards of Thiemos work make it hard to
> pick up.</p>
> <h2>About Debian</h2>

> distributions.</p>
> <p>The Debian project's key strengths are its volunteer base, its
