Thanks for the tip, I was hoping to have 0.93 marked stable as a
precursor to including 0.94 (which should be out soon, yes?). It will be
far harder to have 0.94 marked stable if 0.93 is still unstable - note
that stable/unstable refer to stability of the gentoo packaging (the
ebuild), not dia itself.
Is there somewhere I can learn more about this compatibility bug? I
couldn't find it mentioned in any of the bugs filed against 0.93, nor
could I find any compatability-related comments in the changelog dated
after the 0.93 release.
Given the keybinding problems in 0.92.2 under Gentoo, I was of the
opinion that users would benefit from 0.93 - what do you guys think?
