I have been doing 0.90-F14 builds for the XO-1 and XO-1.5. You can grab 
the latest build from [1].

I provide these builds that people that do have XO-hardware can start 
helping testing 0.90. So far, we did not have much testing yet. We just 
released 0.90.0 and want to do a bug fix release at the end of the month 
[2]. So testing and filing good bug reports is highly welcome.

Please use these builds only for reporting back 0.90 issues. There are 
surely issues that are due to integration issues. Leave them for now.

When you report bugs at [3] with these builds please set the Version to 
0.90 and add the keyword olpc-0.90 to be able differentiate those bugs.

A good first start would be to test the Features [4] that have landed in 
0.90. Each page does contain a test case. As well the release notes at 
[5] might be of help. And of course, testing different languages and 
smoke tests of all different fashions are welcome.

=== Known Issues ===
Here is a list of current Issues in the builds I have found so far:

- Gnome keyring pops up at first start:
     ---> At least a new behavior, if not fixable it should be documented
what to do.

- Physics crashes: http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ticket/2363
     ---> We had a similar issue in Sugar, the same fix can be applied 
here. Gary is working on it as I am writing those lines...

- Calculate does not start: http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ticket/2245
     ---> Version 34 fixes it, will be in a next build

- Terminal: Can not scroll when using less: "Warning Terminal is not
fully functional". On the XO builds I could not edit files with Vi
neither which works here ok. There was a new version of VTE in
updates-testing (0.26.0-1) but that one did not fix that issue.
     ---> We have a hint already.

- Activity icon not disappearing from the neighborhood view
     ---> Tomeu has a fix in Gabble and is verifying now if that happens
on Salut as well.

- Sharing button not updated when resuming a previously-shared activity
      ---> Tomeu is on that one as well.
