   I don't know what OAR's policy is regarding snapshots, but
if you can get a version, use it.  RTEMS 4.5 is due out "real
soon now", and there will be some migration involved from 4.0.0
to 4.5.0.  Starting fresh with the beta will ease this migration.
   Not to mention, the beta has loads of cool things in it.
(web server, filesystem to name two of the most important -- in
my opinion)
