My full review can be found

of reviews can be found
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Category:SnapshotReview as usual.

Today's image marks the return of consistant audio and automatic
launching of X.

The only notable issue that I see is the lack of an Xserver root image
(the "Please wait..." image shown after the splash screen). This is a
cosmetic issue and doesn't affect functionality.

I've introduced a new section to the reviews which I plan to poke at a
bit later - GPRS. As of now there are no tools in the default image to
configure this (other than the terminal) and settings aren't
auto-detected, but I figure that it's an important area and should at
least be given a glance. :)

My recommendation is, for the first time in a while, users interested
in a stable daily image update to the 19 March 2008 rootfs and the
most current kernel, currently the 14 March 2008 image!
