Did Linksys stop developing WRTSL54GS?

    I was just wondering if anyone else noticed that firmware development for WRTSL54GS from Linksys slowed down to a halt. The WRTSL54GS v2.02.1 beta firmware has been out forever, and Linksys never got around to even making it an official release and releasing the source code for it.
    I've seen it happen before with another Linksys product - BEFN2PS4, which a year after it came out stopped recieving new firmware updates, the last one being a beta versaion, while its cousin product BEFSR41 kept getting new firmwares for years.

    I believe the source code is out as Thibor has developed 15c for it. But on the other side of the coin, i think linksys has had there hands full with getting other devices up to snuff that the SL has been placed on the back burner for now. I would expect that it will eventually get around to making that an official release but since there are no complaints about the SL but many about many other devices, the old saying "the squeaky wheel gets the grease" takes precedence here as well.

    Funny enough I have asked this week about the development of the beta firmware and its source code. so far one of my contacts is chasing this up but when any new firmware or the source code will be released is unknown.

    Source code released

    Interesting enough, a new source code was released: 2.06.0 WRTSL54GS-US_v2.06.0.tgz but no actual firmware was released. I wonder what the changes are. And also wonder how long before we get a Thibor 16 version for it (or a Tomato version if Thibor doesn't want to do a new version :) )
