Android 1.6 Donut finally hits Archos 5 Internet Tablet

Archos have again released the Android 1.6 Donut firmware update for their Archos 5 Internet Tablet.  This marks the second attempt for the company, who briefly released an update back in December 2009 before promptly yanking it over a "major issue" with the web browser. The update brings with it all of the non-cellular improvements we're used to seeing in Android 1.6: a new Quick Search feature and improved power management are likely the two biggest draws for Archos 5 owners.  However there's also improvements in media file support, a new version of the ThinkFree Mobile documents viewer, and better UPnP support over WiFi.  There's a full changelog here.
