Hello Steve,

Thank you for your reply. One more last question. Do you have a list of bugs which are fixed in this 0.80.4 Release?

I don't see anything other than Change Log. If you have a separate list, can you please send me the link?

Regards
Ramesh

Ramesh,

Sorry I missed your message.

I would strongly recommend moving to the latest version 0.80.4 if using
even only the event service.  Several defects relating to totem have
been resolved which could result in lost messages or segfaults.

My policy towards maintenance is that if you can reproduce a bug on the
tip of whitetank or the latest stable release from whitetank, I will fix
it and then support the new tip.  Individual versions (such as 0.80.3)
that are old will not have individual bug fixes applied to them and
maintained as a separate branch.  That would invalidate the entire
purpose of the whitetank branch - to provide a stable maintained
version.

Regards
-steve
