Exe is getting updated fairly often now, as wheezy gets closer. Maybe 
every couple of weeks or sooner if new stuff is added or a bug is found. 
Newer images will have all updated Debian packages and TDE from Slavek's 
repo of the marked date.

I meant to post this but got busy recently. More updates soon.

Apart from updates to existing stuff the latest addition is 
gtk-youtube-viewer (YouTube with no browser, no flash) and 
installer/snapshot improvements. A (minimal) XFCE has replaced LXDE as 
alternative desktop. Some language support improvements, more to do.

Loaded a few netbooks with Exe recently, I'm not surprised Debian+TDE 
beats XP for performance!

No need to reinstall, just do regular dist-upgrades till it's all 
officially "stable"

Newer "unofficial" packages can be found at 
That repo is actually preconfigured in /etc/apt/sources.list.d but only 
Debian and TDE official repos are enabled by default
