OK. Thanks.

I understand. The worst part is that the main About... page refers to Ocean City. Perhaps the last two paragraphs should simply say,

This is a stable build of the bql series of CeroWrt from February 2012. For more information on CeroWrt, please see the "CeroWrt Wiki":http://www.bufferbloat.net/projects/cerowrt/wiki

fprobe is fine.

That's OK.

There is so much noise about rc7 & rc8 in the wiki/site. Perhaps it's better simply to jump to a name/version not already mentioned?

I also note that a lot of the stuff from the wiki could be promoted to the Overview, Roadmap, and Activity, and News parts of the main CeroWrt site... I'm happy to do that but don't have access right now.
