How about something like:

The installation process for Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 has been improved in
many ways: support for installation from more than 1 CD or DVD has been
restored, firmware required by some devices can be loaded by using
external USB media, security updates are installed before the initial
reboot when available, and many other improvements. The installer boot
process has also received many attention: a graphical menu can be used
to choose desktop environments, frontends and select expert or rescue
mode. For Microsoft Windows users, the installer can also be started
without having to reconfigure the system BIOS.

That's an initial try, please improve/rewrite as needed. IMHO, Debian
Live requires a specific section in this announcement.
