I still can't switch sessions (ctrl-alt-Fn) while running dual screen xinerama.

Other than that, so far so good.

Is suspend on laptops working with this release? I know they said a few days ago the fix might not make it in their release schedule, but you never know.

same here....i actually have to ssh in from another machine to install the drivers...not a huge deal as i never use the other tty's anyway...

does appear to fix the bug with wine and 3d app crashing on launch after they have been run and exited once tho, thank god no longer do i have to leave things open or reboot X

cheers,
