Hi Cate,

It would also be nice to have in feisty, since it concerns intel cpu's.
Any chances for this?
Kind Regards,

Reinoud.

Debian unstable contains the new microcode (intel-microcode package),
and the fix (in microcode.ctl package) to allow downloading microcode
from intel site (previous microcode was distributed as plain text,
now it is a tar.gz of the plain text microcode).

I've just ask the unblock exception in Debian.
I'll try to get the unblock also on Ubuntu.

ciao
