This update covers a number of bug fixes included since the last update of the distribution tests. Highlights include:

- The new Linux Distribution Checker, successor to our LSB Distribution Test Kit Manager.

- A number of issues with PowerPC and System/390 architectures are now resolved.

- Certain results reported by some tests were not recognized by some of our reporting tools. These results have been adjusted.

- Numerous spurious test failures have been fixed.
