Hey Esteban, forgot to thank you, you helped a lot revising the

>> several new objects and a newly written documentation!
>> In the last release (cyclone 0.3 release candidate 1), we noted how we

>> been updated but not yet fully compliant to Max 5 - nonetheless it's
>> "acceptable" and further work can be taken care in future 0.3.x releases.
>> Anyhow, there were also other updates and fixes and the thing is, with what

>> as I don't want to outshine them (since I'm the usual spokesman of the
