When doing the UK pilot I desperately wanted to use the latest 0.84
release but in September Strawberry had issues with at least the
camera, the Record activity and some of the TamTam stuff. Since then
I've fixed the issue with csound on Fedora 11 which means with updates
that will work (but not the base image) but there's still issues with
the Camera and Record and I'm not sure what testing has been done with
things like Measure using the MIC port with sensors.

Unfortunately at the moment the 802 release is still the best.
