It's 2008.9 like it states, just with the fix of removing
patent-problematic mp3/mp2 support.

It has also been stated that 2008.11 should be coming "soon", and
that's the one with a lot of important fixes.

The kernel in the new 2008.9 release seems to be called
"20081106.uImage.bin" though, and it might be that it's a newer kernel
the original 2008.9 one. That would mean the touch screen works
better, accelerometers have seen some rework and Glamo memory is
slightly overclocked (but the core clock is not, which together with
the wait state reductions would bring a very visible improvement when
the stable-tracking kernel is made into the stable one). Anyway, the
real improvements (echo cancellation, re-register problem workaround)
will be in 2008.11, hopefully soon with the new kernel too (which
would hopefully fix the rest of the suspend issues among else, and the
Glamo speedup).
