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.
