Not yet, Branden hopes to have the next (maybe even last) X release into
frozen within days.  After that, he says he will have time to work on
3.3.3.  He's following a good policy, finish up with frozen before moving
on to unstable.

Same reason a big ice storm took out power across Virginia on Christmas
Eve, bad luck, or good luck depending on how you look at it.  This way we
have plenty of time to test 3.3.3 before calling it stable.

Happy linuxing,
