After being a bit wary of deploying 11.2.3a initially I've had some good feedback from other users so might go for it as it fixes a few niggly bugs we've got with 11.2.2, before I do though some qu's about imaging components:

1) is there a new version of the Tuxera driver released with 11.2.3a that we will need to manually updated on the imaging servers?
2) can we still use images captured with Tuxera on 11.2.2 without re-capturing them and get full speed as we have now?
3) can we still use the nomodeset and Alt+F1 workarounds to speed up imaging until a proper fix is issued?
4) any news on the final fix for the slow imaging \ progress bar bug?
