V7 is not planned to go STABLE for about 18 months, if I remember the
time-line correctly. The iwi work should be done and MFCed to V6 long
before that. Whether it will make 6.1 is less clear to me. Depends on
what RE thinks about allowing it in on limited, but I would not bet
on it.

Damien said that he would be updating the port for V3.0 firmware
shortly. I don't know if he can get approval during the ports freeze,
