The major change since the last test release
should be the fixing of the problem a lot of
folks (especially radeon users) saw on logout
of Gnome/KDE.

Using a radeon graphics card, the error with a panic when exiting the GUI does not occur. There were also problems with random lockups with previous kernels and someone reprted a problem where their mouse functionality broke and their X server would go back to a login screen. I referenced this test kernel for maybe resolving this pecularity with the kernel and radeon cards when running the GUI.
Of course, the power-off using acpi is still present with the 2.6.9 kernel versions.
