There is no need to hurry.  Even when the TL updater is turned off,
packages from CTAN will still be included.  Updating of CTAN packages
ceases when test images are provided, so there is still a lot of time.

I just see that in your CTAN package there is a file


which is waste.  map files for dvipdfm have never been used.  Instead,
updmap creates dvipdfm.map automatically from the files in
fonts/map/dvips and fonts/map/pdftex.  The TeX Live 2011 version of
updmap will not create a dvipdfm.map file because there is no program
anymore which uses it.  dvipdfm is a symlink to dvipdfmx, and the
latter understands pdftex.map.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
