Greetings everyone! Whew! Big day we had yesterday, with lots of bugs
uncovered by everyone. Currently we're rebuilding all the images, so
look for some fixes to land within the next hour. The following bugs
have been found by everyone and were of a critical enough nature to
cause a respin:
Launchpad bug 1006717 in The Eilt project "[MIR] linux-base" [High,New]
Launchpad bug 1008898 in ubiquity (Ubuntu Quantal) "crash after
inserting wireless password" [High,Fix released]
Launchpad bug 1008905 in linux (Ubuntu Quantal) "Quantal Desktop
AMD64+Mac on MacMini: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer
dereference at 00000000000000a0" [High,Fix released]
Launchpad bug 1006937 in isc-dhcp (Ubuntu) "dhclient does not send
hostname to dhcp-server" [Undecided,Fix released]

What this means for us now is we need folks to test the fix for Mac's;
specifically with the b43 wireless driver. In addition of course, we
need to sync the new images as they come in and make sure we've caught
all the crazy bugs and release stoppers in readiness for tomorrow.
Thanks again to all of you who are helping to test. This is the big
finish and if you haven't yet had a chance to help test, when the new
images arrive in the hour, it would be an excellent time to do so and
contribute. As always, hang out in the #ubuntu-testing channel for any
real-time questions or needs you may encounter.
