8.2 is copied from Joyride but has some adjustments to hopefully make  
it more stable - like disabling xshm so the mouse pointer gribblies go  
away in Etoys. You could as well test in Joyride, the Etoys version is  
the same at the moment. When we release a new Etoys it will first pop  
up in Joyride and later in 8.2.

Here are the latest differences in package versions between Joyride  
and 8.2:


At the time of my writing there are no differences, apparently  
joyride-2330 was copied to 8.2-756.

I should properly have written "please test in 754 or later or latest  
joyride" ...
