What`s wrong with the first sentence? In case, you may add 'milestone', 
'top-of-the-edge-technology' or 'border-breaking' - but from my point of 
view, it is a good first sentence. 

When thinking about a press release version, it is helpful to add a few nice 
colored screenshots in high resolution. Press people love it.... 

anyway: congratulations, it's good work! 

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / With kindest regards
