There's appearently a newer build (Jan 2010) available at
http://downloads.openmoko.org/distro/unstable/NeoFreerunner/ -
is this the recommended bootloader now? Do I lose features comparing to Qi by
going back to uboot (faster boot time,faster suspend/resume, better SD/SDHC

Well, as far as I know uboot and qi are updated from time to time, there is no replace one for the other or vice versa, is more which one fits your needs. The main difference between qi and uboot is that qi is needed for kernels bigger that 2MB like the one used with Android - (but I don't know if the last release of uboot can manage this kind of kernels size) -, and the kernel and the filesystem can be in the same partition, instead of the 2 partitions used with uboot.

Maybe someone that knows the 'up to date' features of each one can give you the wide range of defferences.

The SHR's kernel is less than 2MB, so there's no problem at all. And ones it is working with the 2 partitions (kernel and filesystem), you can switch between bootloaders to test which one you like the most.

Best regards.
