AFAIK, 24h before the final DVD is built should be enough for normal packages
(ie w/o binaries), but Karl or others probably know better.  For binaries, I
don't know at all when the last build occurs.

Sorry for that.

> 1. Update of Velthuis devanagari (contains new support for XeTeX with samples)

I was about to update this, but I'm worried about the hindy.sty file being in
'tex/generic': can you check if it's indeed the correct location?

> 2. encxvlna - vlna implemented in encTeX

Done (r9194).

> 3. ean13isbn - printing EAN13 bar code with ISBN as per new
> specification valid since January 1, 2007
Done (r9195).

The last two will be available in tomorrow's tar.lzma packages.
