What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· Everything is in place and ready to release at this point, and unless there's some kind of showstopper found (which doesn't seem too likely after all the testing that's happened), the release can be expected soon. After careful consideration and a considerable amount of internal testing I did relent to give the kernel one more bump to 3.2.29, so of course 3.2.30 was released a couple of hours ago. But that's not a showstopper, and it seems to be time to get off the never-ending kernel upgrade treadmill until the next cycle begins. Speaking of kernels, I added sample .configs for all the 3.x kernel branches in /testing. So test away, and if there are any new problems (or old ones that we missed), let us know soon!
