Some changes will be required in the packaging scripts but I hope to upload them ASAP.

I manually installed to my T61 with no problems, but I must say other than FF freezing on facebook etc I had no problems with 177 either.

BTW facebook still freezes FF on 180.06

Could this be Flash problem? The 64-bit Flash is here.

The VDPAU function looks great :)

"The VDPAU changes in 180.08 were aimed at more graceful handling of problems that occur interacting with the GPU when decoding fails for some reason."
