To be frank I don't remember. One base-64 related function changed its
behavior, that is probably the issue you had above.
You should have a look at the ChangeLog file for more details.
>Can anyone comment on the status of the code in CVS, i.e. "should work" or "we know there are some things which don't work at all".
The code should work, but I would not be entirely surprised if I forgot
to commit something by mistake recently.
>Are there any plans by the way to release a 2.1.24 any time soon?
Yes. There was an earlier plan to release something around the end of
this week, but I think I am going to miss this date. I think April 22nd
is more likely at this point.
It should probably be called 2.1.25, considering the number of changes
between 2.1.24rc1 and the trunk.
