+amnesia (0.4.2) unstable; urgency=low
+
+ New release, mainly aimed at fixing live-initramfs security issue
+ (Debian bug #568750), with an additional set of small enhancements as
+ a bonus.
+
+ * live-initramfs: new custom package built from our own live-initramfs
+ Git repository (commit 8b96e5a6cf8abc)
+ - based on new 1.173.1-1 upstream release
+ - fixed live-media=removable behaviour so that filesystem images found
+ on non-removable storage are really never used (Debian bug #568750)
+
+ * Vidalia: bring back our UI customizations (0.2.7-1~lenny+amnesia1)
+
+ * APT: consistently use the GeoIP-powered cdn.debian.net
+
+ * Software: make room so that {alpha, future} Squeeze images fit on
+ 700MB CD-ROM
+ - only install OpenOffice.org's calc, draw, impress, math and writer
+ components
+ - removed OpenOffice.org's English hyphenation and thesaurus
+ - removed hunspell, wonder why it was ever added
+
+ * Boot
+ - explicitly disable persistence, better safe than sorry
+ - removed compulsory 15s timeout, live-initramfs knows how to wait for
+ the Live media to be ready
+
+ * Build system: don't cache rootfs anymore
