Hi Graeme, Julian,
in Om2008.9, the boot screen will get a little face lift as well.

Graeme, Julian, could you please put this Om2008.9.splash.gz
file along with the other Om2008.9 images, i.e., kernel, rootfs,
Will, I don't know who's writing the release notes and install

# (assuming that's where it will be)
dfu-util -a splash -D Om2008.9.splash.gz
Note: this is the basic invocation of dfu-util. If you use more
options with dfu-util than just -a and -D, e.g., -d, they would
apply as well.
When we have a draft for the install instructions and you want
me to review that part for concistency, please let me know.
