The first one is a typo, the second two were subjective judgements. :? I'm not going to re-edit everything again for one typo, but if anyone finds further errors that impact the technical correctness of the info... I will take a look when I get back from my trip. :cry:

Sorry, raevol, I didn't mean to put pressure on you. I should have posted this in the release thread anyway. My bad.

Have a nice trip! - And thank you for the smooth release, especially since half the team is on holiday.
