    It still says that, but for most of the people the new driver works better
    and it should be included into 2.0.31.
    Take a look at the cleaned up version
    <http://homepages.munich.netsurf.de/Franz.Sirl/tulip.c-pre-2.0.31-6>
    if you want to have the message removed.

    ???
    I don't see a single bug report on linux-tulip[-bug]@cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov
    from you, so how can the bugs be found if you don't report them?

    I think it should remain in 2.0.31, for 95% of the people it's more stable
    than the old one.

    Ciao,
