This release is primarily aimed at improving the stability of the language and finalization of features introduced in 5.2.0. There are over 70 different bug fixes, a great deal of performance improvements for Windows users, corrections to the memory manager and the improvement in the filter functionality. I'd like to ask everyone to try this release out and let us know if you come across any issues and/or regressions.
This stupid static binding problem is most annoying and prevents any useful oop programming. You should fire this guy who stated in the bug list, that this is, how things *should* work - he has no clue.
