Hi Manuel,

Sorry, we'll announce it :-) Actually, this was mostly a fix for a  
powerpc build in Barcelona and rather than doing a separate build I  
figured I could pack what we had in the release branch for everybody.

In the future, I would probably prefer to move to a setup where we  
semi-automatically release a new version from the release branch every  
2-3 weeks (together with nightly builds). Every time we formally  
"prepare" for a release there ends up being "just one more fix" that  
should go in - two days later the first person doesn't have time to  
make the release, and then we wait another week, after which there is  
"just one more fix", etc. ;-)
