    Since my Droid appears to HATE 2.2, I fell back to CM 5.0.7.1 for now. Not too shabby, actually, as fallbacks go. :D

    However, I quickly found my update jollies were lagging, so I found links to the current CM 5.0.8 test builds (still 2.1 based) and loaded it last night (themed ROM version). I am impressed...5.0.8 test1 feels like a released ROM, good to go.

    Change log includes "Experimental BT voice dialing" (which I haven't gotten to run yet) - be interested if anyone else has it working.

    Linkies:

    5.0.8 Changelog

    5.0.8 Discussion on CM Mod forum

    5.0.8 Test build downloads (unthemed test0 and test1)

    5.0.8 Test1 themed ROM (What I'm running right now)

    Anyone like me not on the 2.2 train yet, feel free to jump right in. :)

    The Blue theme version of 5.0.8 test1 is, well, very blue (;)) but I tweaked the text color for notifications using spare parts, and it does look better than stock.

    Slayher is going to release a themed 5.0.8 ROM as soon as 5.0.8 is released, really like his Genesis theme on 5.0.7.1.

    Don't know yet if Fab will find time from his 2.2 work to do a NexTheme ROM for CM 5.0.8 when it's released...(that too subtle, Fab?) ;)

    Hope this is of use to others for whom 2.2 isn't happening on their Droids...

    I'm pretty sure Manup will have a themed version for CM when the final 5.0.8 comes out.

    He just doesn't seem to care about any other ROMs, which is why we have to port them :D

    Aww, hoping it was 2.2 based.

    We won't be seeing any Cyanogen 2.2 ROMs until Google releases the source themselves.

    Yeah, sorry for the accidental mis-direct, Jackburnt...but believe me, had this been for a CM 2.2 build, the subject would have had a lot of exclamation marks. :)
