ah, that not yet. it should take a while until I get to that (if I do).

I brought the documentation up, because I'm not aware of the newest  
features that should make me (or anyone?) choose one version to the other  
(having not had to stolper on them during work). I can spend the whole  
afternoon looking in the list for fragments of opinios, but is that really  
a viable solution?
you mentioned 64bit, and the other things, do you know of any place where  
to find a small reference about that? now I am curious. I usually update  
the version anyway, but more for sport than after a carefully-pondered  
reflexion (in the case of Pd).

me neither. I just see that kind of reply over and over, and I add this  
disclaimer now and then, just to make sure.
