Hi Michael,

I think that Lenny will be a great release for Debian-Med, and I will do
my best for it to be a Genome-Lenny as well. But let us not be shy of
our work in Etch. How about:

More possibilities for neuroscience research.

Debian-Med offers tools to work with medical imaging data obtained from
various techniques such as magnetic resonnance or computer tomography
for instance. These tools are useful to pre-clinical research in
neuroscience as well and with the release of Etch, Debian-Med expanded
its support with the addition of the NIfTI library, which is
particularly focused on magnetic imaging. Anonther novelty of this
release is the first appearance of packages dedicated to experimental
psychology such as the Python Experiment-Programming Library. 

Have a nice day,
