Somebody in the thread at some point said:

| Could someone point to these valid u-boot*.bin files please ?

| and got a message displayed advertising some april version (which I
| unfortunately didn't write down)... so I'm puzzled :(

Are you sure that it is not 4th Aug --> looks like 8th April in some
countries?  I doubt the latest symlink is broken for so many months.

| up-to-date or not ?

At the moment we don't stamp the image with the git head of the sources
it came from, we should move to that.  There's a build date on the menu
and coming out of the serial console as you saw.

At the moment this one is up to date for today and has the "USB Insane
Spam Mode" fixes.


About the patchlevel, the git hash in the filename lets you check here


and find out what patches are in and out.  In the stable trees (although
this isn't true for stable-2.6.26 yet) we only add patches, so if you
hover on each patch near the top (and look at the URL in your browser
status bar) you can find the matching git hash for the patch that was at
the top when the package was made.  Right now the topmost patch in git
is 64eb10cab80... mentioned in the package, so you know you have all the
patches in there.
