If we're lucky, the new release will be just about everything that the
i386 NetBSD is--minus all the ISA drivers ;-).  There is a NuBus ethernet
driver, but it wedges the ADB...  We'll attempt to fix that before a
release, but that's not a promise.  There are a few kinks in the shared
library stuff, too, that I *will* work out before a release.  It's worth
holding out for if you're running with just the original (alpha) release.

We're discussing these matters, now, but I think it's safe to say that
there will be a release before the end of Jan., and possibly one before.
