Welcome to Release and Release (deployed five hours later) and *coughs* Release (deployed a day later again) and Release (and again) or Revision 1980 1985 1995 2001, up from 1957. This is a bug-fixing release and as such is mostly composed of minor changes.

Our next deploy will be a couple of fixes we're working on right now to resolve issues with the 'Post New' form loading slowly and possibly a fix for the tags cloud. Some time next year!

Any critical fixes we need for Yuletide coming through in a trickle.
