(That's weird. It's updated, but hasn't changed it on the news site. Something with the cache there, it will eventually change).

http://spacestationlive.nasa.gov/ now shows the station back in momentum management attitude control mode, and rates are close to zero. Sadly the ADCO display no longer seems to provide absolute roll/pitch/yaw values, but I assume they are all back to normal as well.

I guess no-body has interest in the undocking of a spacecraft?  ;)

Progress M-23M will undock today at 21:40 UTC - NASA TV will cover that starting from 21:30 UTC. It will again participate in the Radar-Progress experiment (from July 26 to July 31) for measuring the effects of propellant exhaust on the Earth's ionosphere. De-orbiting is scheduled on August 1.
