Have a look at the changelog at


The 2 items that I think are of interest in this upload is that we've 1)
reverted to vesafb from uvesafb, and 2) changed the default TCP
congestion algorithm to 'cubic' from 'reno' to align with upstream
default (as well as other distros).

1) Hopefully this will solve some of the usplash corruption and crash
issues that have been reported at boot time.

2) The cubic congestion algorithm is more resilient (or so I've been
told), partucularly on poor wireless connections where packets are more
likely to get randomly dropped.
