Me too! But it was this afternoon and I couldn't believe I barely missed the new package. Well, not for long. I'm running Gslapt now.

:) My reaction was %~#t, I just built the blasted thing.....

Not at all sure why there was so little time between releases, or for that matter why they skipped 3.6.5. The release notes only show what looks like a fairly minor bug fix.

One oddity - installed under VL 6.0 light (which is my standard  build environment) and as soon as I ran it, I got a page prompting me to ugrade Flash immediately. Which I did. Didn't get that page when I ran it under VL 6.0 Standard, have no idea why not.

Seems to be sluggish. One particular site teachat.com can't
pratically be used. Had to switch to Opera.

It's working fine here, though I haven't tested much. teachat.com was normal, not slow.

I double checked. It is not the version. Went back to 3.6.3 and the problem is the same
with teachat where it was not before. Something must have happened in my box. ???
Other websites I opened behave normally.

Problems navigating on some sites; some sites just plain crash. Error console says it's do to security issues.

The flash player update suggested with this one is extremely buggy here. Error console says "can't interpret (command here)". The problems are obviously with flashplayer itself. This makes me absolutely delirious with righteous glee.

Downgrading to the player suggested by firefox 3.6.4 (but leaving ff itself at 3.6.6) solved most of the new problems. Can't have everything.

Solved it. It was xorg.conf issue. When I installed VL6-Light-Live I did not run
vxconf and therefore the display setting was faulty. Strange so it manifested
it only with Firefox and that teachat website.
