   \frametitle{The future of the PREEMPT\_RT patchset}
-  Conclusion of the Realtime Linux minisummit (Nov. 2013):
-  \item {\em The PREEMPT\_RT project will be done in 2014, "one way or another".
-        The first way would be to get most of the rest of the code upstream, but
-        that will require more of an effort, from a wider group than is
-        currently involved. The alternative is to decide that the 95\% of the
-        realtime work already upstream is good enough and to drop further
-        efforts.}
-  \item Main issue: lack of companies devoting enough engineering
-        resources to complete the job.
-  \item See \url{http://lwn.net/Articles/572740/}
+  \item July 2014 status: the project is stalled because of lack
+	of funding. Thomas Gleixner is still the maintainer but
+	lacks time for further development and mainlining efforts.
+	He must work on other topics that pay the bills!
+  \item December 2014: the latest release is 3.14.10-rt7 (while
+	mainline is 3.18).
+  \item Contact (and contract) Thomas if you need further
+	features and support for newer kernels.
+  \item See \url{http://lwn.net/Articles/604695/}
