Hi Koen,

Herring will be announced soon during the next few days, once the 
repository is minimally ready. Please be patient.
For those who cannot absolutely wait  here's a few words about herring, 
which you can find on http://sardine.garage.maemo.org/about.html


Sardine will always contain the latest component versions. However, in 
order to make releases it is necessary to feature freeze the software 
and concentrate on polishing, bug-fixing and otherwise stabilizing the 
code. Doing this without stopping forward development requires branching 
off the code. This is done in the revision control system, component by 
component as it becomes necessary. When components start branching in 
the revision control system the Sardine distro branches as well: a 
separate stabilization distro is created.

The current stabilization HAF distro is Herring. _Please note that the 
Herring is still under construction but should be available very soon_

We are preparing the herring repository here:

    * deb http://repository.maemo.org herring main non-free

However, I wouldn't encourage anybody to try it out just yet, it's just 
not ready.
