+ <title>News from Debian Med Blend</title>
+ <para>The Debian Med team has increased the number of packages in the
+ field of biology and medicine again by a large amount. However, not only
+ the number of packages was increased but also the quality of packages in
+ terms of testing (at package build time as well as autopkgtest) was
+ enhanced and supports the demand of Debian Med in a scientific
+ environment to fullfill the request of scientists for reproducible
+ results. These enhancements are reflected by version 2.0 of the Debian
+ Med metapackages. Feel free to visit the
+ <ulink url="http://blends.debian.org/med/tasks">Debian Med tasks pages</ulink>
+ to see the full range of biological and medical software inside Debian.
