there are a few buglets and oopses in the original 3.1 release, but
Patrick has made substantial changes since then - 40 updates according
to the changelog on my mirror ftp server. The most recent are that Xfree86
is now v3.2, some xap and ldso changes.

I wish he'd hurry up and update bind to 4.9.4P1 though. ;-)
