Hola mobianistas. SERVICE NOTICE: Don't upgrade from asound and asound-data beyond libasound2_1.2.2-2.3. Todays upgrade breaks your phone calls as it messes up sound profiles somehow. Don't ask me about details right now, I don't know them. (again: 1.2.2-2.3 is fine.)

We're happy to share a few pictures of a prototype!
