I agree, it's very nice.
The one thing I'd add is debconf, which seems to fit in the "many
enhancements" section. Potato's ability to configure and re-configure
packages on the fly in a generic way without editing ascii files addresses
one of the main criticisms in the press against a lot of free software in
GNU/Linux systems. I like to call it "wizards done right".
Just my $.02 worth. Thanks for a great press release!
