    in case you didnt see my post in Cosmology forum, check out
    pages 48 and 49
    figures 20 and 21

    I can't say definitely but it looks like a new best estimate is emerging for Omega, which now might be more like 1.04 than the old figure of 1.02.

    Cant be sure about this, see for yourself.

    here is a press release, couldnt get much out of it though
