> Are there any plans for an official bug-fix release?
Yes. I gotta go back and see what I said a few weeks ago, but I thought the plan was to go for this in early July. There's clearly a pile of bug fixes already in SVN trunk, and a pile of bug reports too.
I also have been testing out the Clang static analyzer, which finally seems to give useful reports for C++ code. There do seem to be some code bugs found here as well.
