Hi,

DebConf10 in New York goes towards its end those minutes and as a
result we just uploaded initramfs-tools 0.98 to Debian/unstable.

Most notably are improvements with regards to failures during
build/hook time, some reverted nounsets and added support for
(absolute) symlinks for the init binary.
