Code update   (Posted by Alex Kroh, 4 Sep, 2013)
The kernel scheduler time slice has been decreased from 200ms to 10ms to improve responsiveness. Update your code base is the usual way #changeset 5aefdeb20022.
Code update   (Posted by Alex Kroh, 16 Aug, 2013)
A recent performance optimisation in the kernel has had the side effect of limiting the amount of accessible physical memory. Unfortunately, the kernel was not told that it should no longer export this memory to user space. The result is a kernel data abort when user space attempts to access this memory. The bug has been fixed in changeset 8f21358e09cc. You will need to pull, update and merge to import the changes. Be sure to commit any outstanding changes before doing so.
Project pages being updated!   (Posted by Kevin, 31 Jul, 2013)
The project pages are in the process of being updated. I expect them to stabilise on Friday. Until they are finalised, expect them to be a guide only.
