i run trunk and try to keep reasonably up to do. so the actual release 
does not make a whole lot of difference.

what does make a difference to me is the activity to reduce the bug 
count that occurs just before it is made. broken channel changing in 
live-tv is one that i would love to see fixed.

getting upnp to work nicely with xbox and ps3 would be nice. all my 
recordings turn up as music on an xbox. but that is not my prime 
use-case, so i can live with it.
