Subject[STATUS 2.5] December 11, 2002
The stabilization work has begun.  One item of interest this week
is the update to the new framebuffer/console API.
Full list is available at

Also, with more people testing different configurations, the
number of bugs in bugzilla has increased quite a big since last
week. 80 and counting.
