There is a new package with the driver updates available in stable-proposed-updates (version 2.6.32-36). The point release is now scheduled for 8th October and the kernel source package must be finalised about 2 weeks before that to allow time for reubilding the kernel, installer and CD images. This means there are about 10 days left to test this and fix bugs. I think it would be worth making a separate announcement a.s.a.p. Ben. -- Ben Hutchings All extremists should be taken out and shot.
