Thank you for the heads up - the last time I checked was in June and saw zero activity in regards to the udisks backend. Unfortunately the timetable for completion is about as clear as mud at the moment - it would be nice if at the very east someone created a sexy website and progress chart.

I'm tracking along the kernel development and things appear to be progressing nicely; it'll be interesting to see the shape of KDE at around this time next year taking into account KOffice, K3B and Amarok.
