The much-requested source code for DesktopMan's Tetris Wii has been released. The original post can be found on DesktopMan's site and it can be downloaded from there (RAR) or here (TAR GZ). (Note: This does not contain a binary, nor is it a new version. It does include a Visual Studio project.)
A new Wii System Update has been released, containing a new version of the firmware (IOS37) with a fix for the signing bug. A further update is required to activate this fix.
Note this is NOT the update from a couple of days ago that was related to Wiiware.

AtaWii Beta 1.0 has been released ( An Atari St emulator )
An SDLoader for Wii to be used with the Trucha Signer was released yesterday at the Spanish forum of elotrolado (This is an ISO Image used to make development faster. The ISO is a loader which loads files (*.dol) from the SDGecko so developers don't have to re-burn a DVD every time they make an update, they just have to update the SD card. A modchip is still needed.)
Super Smash Bros Brawl System Update
Super Smash Bros Brawl (NTSC) apparently includes a required system update before the Wii is able load the game. The update is only available through the game disc itself and not through Wii Online Update. It is most likely just bug fixes for the game and includes the standard warning about the update possibly bricking the wii if you have any "Unauthorized Modifications", but so far this update does not appear to affect the Twilight Hack on unmodified consoles. -Cyber
