Daily Snapshot Review 13 March 2008

Today brings no improvement in terms of the images. Sound support is
still not in the rootfs images, the splash screen is still missing.
There's still a typo in the Bluetooth applet. :D

The good news is that the typo in the Bluetooth applet AND the "no
sound" bug have been fixed as of yesterday. These changes will both
find their way into tomorrows rootfs. This is basically due to the way
the build process is automated.

Yesterday I managed to flash every rootfs in buildhost between 28 Feb
2008 and 12 March 2008 to trace back the no sound issue. In this
process I found that the 28 Feb 2008 image is "stable" enough for use,
so here's today's recommendation. :)

I recommend that users do NOT update to the 13 March 2008 image for
daily use on the Neo, instead I recommend using the 28 Feb 2008 image.
