After getting valueable feedback from beta testers using e-mail and the bugtraq system I’m about to release a new firmware version (Release Candidate).
We do release this firmware with Kernel 2.4 so that’s why you will see 1.09.32 as firmware version
Kernel 2.4 firmware images will be released in the 1.09.xx. range and Kernel 2.6 firmware images in the range 1.10.xx
Firmware versions in the 1.10.xx range will not be released to the public yet.
It is the intention to release this version (1.09.32.06) as internet upgrade and as downloadable firmware file from the official website before the end of this week.
