Early review today, thanks to a bout of heartburn and insomnia. :P

Sadly, I spoke too soon. Despite the fact that changes were merged
yesterday, those changes do not reflect in today's images. :( This
means once again there is no working sound on the nightly image.

I notice no real difference between today's image and yesterday's in
performance or usability with the exception, Thomas Wood's "Show
numbers on contact list" patch ha been merged in, meaning the contacts
list is a bit easier (IMO) to navigate and use.

This also raises the question, howvever, to why the audio patches
(merged about 48 hours ago) aren't affective yet, but that patch
(merged about 20 hours ago) is. I'll contact someone on the build team
to see if there's an issu.

Today's review, and future ones, have a new sub-section by request:
Suspend and resume. I'll measure the stability and usability of the
power-saving suspend and resume features.

My recommendation is to NOT use this image for daily use. Instead, I
would recommend the 28 Feb 2008 snapshots found at
