I am very interested to know exactly what has changed between gromacs  
4.0.5 and 4.0.6/7. I understand that the test set is no longer useful  
for gmx-4 (see quote below) and I'm not strongly motivated to update  
my gromacs version when I don't know what bugs will be fixed and there  
is always some non-zero chance of new bugs being introduced. Then  
again, I am motivated to get rid of a buggy version if indeed 4.0.5  
should be described as such.

Quoting the homepage:
"Gromacs-4.0.6 has been released, and a couple of hours later 4.0.7  
since the first version tried to build 3DNow instructions by default  
on 64bit linux (don't worry - there's nothing wrong if you managed to  
build 4.0.6!) This is a maintenance version that fixes a number of  
minor bugs reported in bugzilla over the last couple of months."

I have done my best to find details on these "fixes a number of minor  
bugs", but have not found anything. I checked the revision mailing  
list, but found no posts since April 2009:  

There is also no useful information here:
on exactly what those changes might be...

And quoting this page:

"While there has been a release of the test set aimed at GROMACS 4  
(gmxtest-4.0.4.tgz), it is not terribly useful and has a number of  
known failure cases. Accordingly, attempting to test your GROMACS 4  
release with that test is not strongly recommended."

I'd be grateful if anybody can point me in the right direction here.
