|=| A new issue (0.17)[2] of PocketWorkStation for Linux PDAs
    has been released. Want to run a full Debian GNU/Linux operating environment
    on your Linux PDA?  Want to switch between Qtopia and X11 whenever you
    like without rebooting or needing to stop any of your X11 applications?
    Give Pocketworkstation a try. Runs completely out of a single directory
    (a 256MB SD card is ideal), no re-flashing or modification of
    the existing operating system is required.

|=| Synaptics touchpad driver (0.13)[3] and laptop_mode for Kernel 2.6.5[4]
    are now available. The laptop_mode patch extends the battery life of
    your laptop.

|=| Mobile Adhoc Networks under Linux are on the go. This months has
    brought new issues of: Qolyester an OLSR protocol for wireless
    ad hoc networks[5]. UniK OLSR daemon is an Optimized Link State Routing
    protocol for MANETs (0.4.3)[6]. Another approach is made by
    the AODV-UU - routing protocol for ad-hoc networks (0.7.2)[7].
