I gave up waiting on kernel.org and really wanted to do the 1.7.7 final toward this weekend, but found a corner case regression in the recursive merge backend (again). 1.7.7-rc3 contains a quick fix for it, and needs to be cooked for a few days at least, so the final will have to wait at least until mid next week.
18.104.22.168 merges a handful of fixes that have already been merged to the master branch and are included in 1.7.7-rc3.
They are both available at
and also are found in my public repositories at various hosting sites:
