New MCF5225x manuals disappointing. Information flow?

Hello all,


anybody else missing his error reports in the new MCF5225x manuals?


I submitted three documentation error reports (if someone from Freescale reads this: 1-690691025, 1-694827321, 1-694854494) last November but all three errors are in the new manual. I wonder why I put a lot of work into error reports if they are not published.


And I'm afraid there is even a new error (I currently can't check it): The CAN clock source changed from fsys/2 to fsys. Is it really fsys?


Also extremly annoying is the fact that putting 3,3V into EXTAL "may lead to a decrease in lifespan of the device". What about the large number of devices already shipped, using an external oscillator powered from Vcc?


Hard to stay calm.
