We are making very good progress with lots of issues reported and
Steve Mynott and Sepherosa Ziehau found a fairly serious issue with
network interface detachments (such as when you pull a cardbus card out).
Sepherosa is working on a fix, which he is comitting to HEAD. It will
be MFC'd to the release branch before we release.
This is going to necessitate pushing back the release by a week, so
the tentative release date is now January 7th. As I have said many
times, we are not going to release until we are happy with the release!
( I think in the future I will shift the December release to January
anyway because Christmas seems to interfere with the release process
a little too much! )
I will roll release-candidate #2 tonight, with the provisio that the
netif detachments haven't been fixed yet.
