Thank you Francesca. Here are my remarks:
Almost two years after Debian 5.0<q>Lenny</q>  was released,<a
href="$(HOME)/News/2011/20110205a">Debian 6.0
<q>Squeeze</q>  was released on the 6th of February, 2011</a>.
Among other improvements, the completely free
Linux kernel now shipped in Debian has been<a
welcomed by the Free Software Foundation (FSF)</a>.
This formulation seems to say that the removal of non-free parts from Linux is only one of the Squeeze improvements that the FSF welcomes. As far as I know there are no other improvements welcomed by the FSF, and if there are this paragraph doesn't give a clue about how to discover them.

Saying that a licensing improvement was welcomed by the FSF is also strange, the FSF itself shipping non-free parts in some software as "invariant sections". As far as I know the FSF doesn't even have any plan to change that, while at least Debian acknowledged the non-free firmware issue as a bug before it was solved.
