We have the first cut of the public datasheet but it needs some slight 
rework. I've also been cleaning up some 2.4 tuning issues for a specific 
project I'm working on. Those will need to be merged back into the 2.6 
driver.

I'm strong arming the company because I'm not going to release a binary 
driver. (We could of done this 6 months ago ahead of the launch).

... So much for release early release often. This never works when you 
have to get the legal people involved. Damn lawyers! :)

If I get the email I expect today, it will be released this weekend. 
Else, mid next week.
