I wish you wouldn't do this, it's not even on the official site yet or announcement and you dont provide a link so how can we discuss it.

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.
