Archos have released a new firmware update for the Archos 5 Internet Tablet, v1.6.08, and the key change is the introduction of Android 1.6 "Donut".  With the new version of the OS comes the quick-search box for the MID/PMP's homescreen, improved power management, native WVGA display support and VPN functionality; Archos have also tweaked media handling, so that the Archos 5 Internet Tablet better supports H.264 SD and HD videos.

Update: Strangely, all mention of the update - including the firmware itself - has been pulled from Archos' site.

The Archos 5 Android Internet Tablet saga continues, with sales of the 5-inch PMP still partly frozen on Amazon while the company has also pushed out a new firmware update.  Amazon put the Archos 5 160GB on hold earlier this week after unspecified complaints from buyers; now the 500GB model has come into stock with the retailer, but shows no such sales-freeze.  According to ArchosFans, meanwhile, there's a new, stable firmware - version 1.1.01 - that addresses many early complaints from owners.
