Not directly, only indirectly.
I have noticed that several kernal modules are missing in the distros since =
1.2.7 wich breaks omon other things bandwidth controll and some of iptables =
Many things were due to changes in external modules/packages.
Is that ment to be that way os is something being forgotten, or is it to =
force us to do our own compiles?
Certainly not forgotten. It is only, that Heiko and Bruce, the older two =
maintainers are overburdened. They haven't been able to contribute enough =

You have to pretest+verify your application to be sure it works.
...or you have to compile it yourself.
I'm using 1.2.6 mostly :-/ It really is current enough for most =
