Nmap OS fingerprint changes stable?

        Just a quick question... I know that work was being performed on refining
the OS fingerprint flags and methodology.  Is that work finalized enough that large
fingerprint submissions are a good idea or should I wait?

The reason I ask is that I finally got back to work on a project that uses Kris
Katterjohn's ruby based Nmap::Parser library [1].  One of the tools parses the
nmap's xml output in a directory and prints the fingerprints of unknown services
and/or operating systems.  If the new nmap OS fingerprint changes are stable I will
perform some network scans and submit the results.   If not, I will hold off until
the work is ready.
