In the release.txt file, the dates are wrong (they reference "April 1st,
2007" while it should be "April 8th, 2007").
It also says:
As always, Debian GNU/Linux systems can be upgraded quite painlessly, in
place, without any forced downtime, but it is strongly recommended to
read the release notes for possible issues.
This is unfortunately not true: the upgrade is quite painful with a
minimal upgrade, then an upgrade for some packages (depending on your
configuration) and the kernel, a reboot and then the complete system
dist-upgrade (see section 4.5 of the release notes for details).
