"Anyone know if some flyaround images have been released?"

I've been looking for those myself.  I keep hitting Refresh on the spaceflight.nasa.gov gallery page but alas no new images from Flight Day 12.  The wait will be worth it, I know.
I'll even excitedly look forward to "flags and footprints" and suborbital missions. Just fly...somewhere.

They have a few of the shuttle from station that are pretty nice, but no station from shuttle yet.

Beta Cut Out??

Excuse the ignorance.
There's a good explanation at http://sci.tech-archive.net/Archive/sci.space.shuttle/2006-08/msg00226.html

The quick and dirty version is, beta angle cut-out is those periods when the ISS orbit is oriented with regard to the sun so that there isn't enough orbital night to keep the orbiter AND ISS radiators cool.

Well remember that when the two separated, the shuttle ku-band was prioritized for OBSS scans, while the station really did not have too much competition over ku.

I played a little bit with autostitch. I hope you like it.
Absolutely!
Here's your same mosaic slightly rotated to the left. I hope you don't mind.

Not correct.  During fly around, the ISS Ku was parked during part of it to prevent radiating the pyro bolts on the orbiter.  The STS Ku had a mask to prevent it from reflecting back from ISS structure.  But other than that - there were no restrictions - both had plenty of TDRS Ku time.
