There will be new builds weekly or more often for large feature
additions that could do with testing. These will be announced on
devel at laptop.org list. There was OS40 released today. Next one should
be on Friday.

I think shortly (maybe next build) we should move to auto firmware
updates with the OS release so that with each OS update we're running
the recommended OFW release. We're shipping it in OS40, not sure if it
auto updates, but will test that myself this evening.
