Hi Olly,

I have a few questions according this release:

Is a database-rebuild advised? Is the zlib-patch you sent me a few days 
back valid for this release or is that zlib-work incorporated in this 

I noticed this change in the build-system:
* configure: If any tools needed for documentation are missing
   and we're in maintainer mode, die with a suitable error in
   configure rather than with strange errors when building the

For the zlib-addition I needed to use maintainer-mode, but afaik I don't 
have the appropriate tools for the documentation and I don't really need 
the documentation to be built, previously it continued and built 
perfectly, is that still the case?

Did you incorporate the improved/reversed sorting already in omega? Btw, 
I couldn't find that change in the news-file?

Best regards,

Arjen van der Meijden
