In chapter 10. Documentation and resources on page 532:

Following the release of sarge, the Debian debbugs team has added the ability to track package versions instead of just single packages with the Debian bug tracking system. This has been a feature much requested, which should greatly facilitate the period leading up to an official Debian release.

Details of the added and changed features and commands can be found in the announcement.

Abhijeet Chavan, Urban Insight, Inc.: I liked Krafft's precise, straight-to-the-point writing style. He makes basic as well as advanced topics readable without coming across as either condescending or cryptic. The terse footnotes are useful and supplement the text with interesting tips and resources. This is a technical book for sure, without fluff or off-topic detours, and it's packed with information. Still, Krafft manages to impart a personal feel by sharing his observations and balanced opinions. He delivers frank assessments of the strengths, weaknesses and eccentricities of a Debian system. In fact, the book even includes an appendix on how to decide if Debian is the right GNU/Linux distribution for you.
