To answer a few inevitable questions:

This is F11 + Sugar 0.84 + GNOME 2.26, for XO-1.

It's unsigned, meaning that you need a developer key to install it. I
think OLPC will start producing signed betas soon.

It's similar to recent builds made by Steven Parrish, and the 0.84
variant of the Paraguayan builds, the main differences are that a few
more bugs have been fixed, and that everything comes from official
OLPC RPM repositories and osbuilder, making it easier for deployers in
other places. One of the bigger changes is the readdition of mesh
support in sugar.

It's particularly significant because (when the release goes final) it
means we have synchronized software between XO-1 and XO-1.5.

In terms of bugs I've been working here:

Even though its similar to the versions that many have already been
testing, this would benefit from some fresh testing with the mindset
of it being an upgrade on top of OLPC OS 8.2.1 build 802.

I feel that this version is almost ready for release, but am eager to
see if other people can find new problems.

It is being built with olpc-os-builder from git, using configuration
examples/olpc-os-10.1.2-xo1.ini (see
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OSBuilder )
