ZDNET seems to have the inside scoop...

Rogers is releasing the Infuse with Gingerbread today and Samsung released kernel sources for the Gingerbread kernel for the Infuse yesterday, so expect Odin-flashable dumps to be available within a few days.
Also a good chance of CM7 within a few weeks now.

The list includes Infuse and Captivate

The biggest thing I want is the Bluetooth over voice dialing.
Especially nice that I will be able to pair to my BlueAnt Q2 headset.
And my wife's Cappy can be upgraded too!
Next we need to know what bugs are in 2.3, and if it's caused headaches for users!

That's a fairly old update - been around at least 1-2 months. From Froyo UCKD5 to Froyo UCKE3.
Rogers Gingerbread is UCKG3. AT&T Gingerbread doesn't exist yet.

UCKE3 has a radio firmware update, not sure what else. The firmware binary plus the updater executable doesn't leave much else for an 8M update.
All of the attention on XDA is on the Rogers UCKG3 Gingerbread release now...

Infuse user both wife and I. I do pray, that AT&T checks GB good. Cause I have seen some posts on android central and a couple of other sites, that sprint customers are having issues with the GB upgrade. Yes, I know we are AT&T. But I was a Telecom mobile switch engineer and I know the cellular switch end of it can be an RF nightmare sometimes. I would rather have good testing and be a little patient than go through all that frustration. I know I need to read more, I am new to Android, came from 3gs, and takes some getting used too but loving the freedom this awesome device provides. Amazing device speeds in reaction time... Thx...

The AT&T GB update will be garbage - bloated and laggy. This is the definition of all factory AT&T firmwares unfortunately. They always take forever to release updates in the name of "testing" but when the update comes out - it's always bloated and laggy compared to uncustomized "vanilla" firmware for similar hardware. Really, if AT&T wants the best possible customer experience, then why are they continuing to allow Samsung to use RFS instead of ext4 as the filesystem on their phones - RFS is so notorious for poor performance that "Voodoo Lagfix" (automatic ext4 conversion) is a standard feature in all third-party firmwares for these phones and is #2 on the list of things third-party firmware developers for Samsung devices target (Clockworkmod Recovery being the #1 item...)
The Rogers Gingerbread firmware is awesome, other than the fact that it's missing HDMI/MHL support - this was an explicit conscious decision by Rogers not to have this feature. Battery life with Gingerbread is FAR better than Froyo.
Congratulations! You earned the Liz badge!
