LOX offloaded? I guess partial LOX loading before hold and then they went into LOX drain for rechilling.

Not official, but the periscope feed just stated that it's delayed until the end of the launch window, 7:40 ET.

Definitely no venting for at least 10 minutes now. And after I wrote that, F9 released another puff of smoke.

This is a troubleshoot with the option being held to go at the end of the window. If they don't resolve the issue it'll be scrub (obviously). So end of the window is only an option right now.
