I just wrote and pushed the news entry for 2009-11-30 (sorry for being late). 

I'm sure I missed something important this month (had my exams and celebrated 
them...), so please have a look: 

A month of the Hurd: *network in userspace* and *grub2 from hurd*. 

> This month Zheng Da ported the pcnet32 driver into user space

> [performance tests](http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-
> The test results were mostly on par with the in-kernel driver, so they show 
> that moving networking on the Hurd into user space can be done
> without losing (much) performance. 
> Also thanks to Samuel Thibault, the latest grub2 package (1.97+20091125-1)
> [supports native installation](http://lists.debian.org/debian-
> from GNU/Hurd itself. Grub was originally designed
> [to allow booting of GNU/Hurd systems]
> so this step brings it closer to its original purpose again. 

Best wishes,
