Paleonet: Toumai and Orrorin

I’m trying to prepare a talk on early primates and am trying to clarify current opinion of the role of Toumai and Orrorin. Has Toumai been definitely assigned to evolutionary history as a Miocene ape rather than a human ancestor?  Is Orrorin now accepted as the oldest human ancestor?

Can anyone help?
