I see you've done a lot of really good work over the weekend. Two questions:

1) There are two mentions of Linux kernel versions in your note below: should they be 3.3.x? Specifically:

... + Linux 3.2.2 ...
- and -
... I will probably update the kernel to 3.2.3 ...

If not, then I guess I'm confused, and would like a little more background about the kernel and patches (3.3 vs. 3.2) that are present in the 3.3.2-2 (and other recent) releases.

2) Should I begin incorporating this new info into the Release Notes page with an eye toward announcing 3.3.2-3?

Things of note:

+ ipv6 and ipv4 now have comparable forwarding performance

Huge hat tip to Ketan Kulkarni and Robert Bradley for this one.
see  http://www.bufferbloat.net/issues/360 for the gory details.

This does not just improve forwarding performance, it makes
things like tests done on the router have far more reliable
results. There's still a ways to go on #360, but we'll get there.

+ Linux 3.2.2
+ Default firewall rules now work with web interface
- Firewall rules still need more love and thought
+ My alternate firewall rule script works much better
- No way to make that into a gui
+ ccnx package fixed (thx stephen walker)
+ scamper package added (thx stephen walker)


+ gpsd updated to final release (thx lots of people)
+ quagga updated (bugfix)

+ Ingress and egress aqm shaper prototypes now exist in the deBloat repo
- Still only prototypes
- still no working dhcp-pd

At this time I consider the core features and code of cerowrt basically frozen.

About the only things I expect to land before release are a more final version
of dnsmasq, and I will probably update the kernel to 3.2.3 when it is released
to reduce the number of out of tree packages.
