It had some for me, and even after updating there were two more
bundles to be installed. I could not yet test again today since the
wiki is down.
BUG: It did not find the 8.2.1 specific Etoys activity release at
Possibly because /etc/olpc-release still says "8.2"?
(not a severe issue for etoys since only minor changes happened in the
activity vs. the rpm)

Mine remained set to German as before the update.

Overall in my brief testing so far I did not see issues, in particular
the updated etoys packages appear to work as fine as usual ;)
