Please note that if a piece of hardware was working on a previous release than the current one, there is a pretty good chance that it will work on the most recent release. However, there is no guarantee that the current release did not somehow break the driver or configuration for that piece of hardware (for example refer to Bug 168618). Please check that the hardware continues to work as expected for the most recent release before updating the Icon-question.pngs for the most recent release in the following tables.
