Current version in sid is 1.0.6106-3. It works just fine with my 2.6.7
kernel and my nvidia card, and udev.
I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
See http://www.gnupg.org/ for info about these digital signatures.
My key was last signed 10/14/2003. If you use GPG *please* see me about 
signing the key. ***** My computer can't give you viruses by email. ***
