Hi there,

When I released 3.7 FINAL I said development for 3.x series has stopped, but I
cannot stop ... It's just like a drug ;) ... Next release will be definitively
WOLK4.0 with 2.4.20 ... Just waiting for O(1), Lowlat, Preempt for O(1)
patches for 2.4.20 ...

I guess you'll like this release very much!
