It's been a long while since there was any traffic on this list :-(

Finally, Ipe 6.0 preview 11 is now available on the website

Thanks to everybody who reported bugs or commented on features.

This is a bug-fix release (there were quite a few of those...)

Which brings me to the other major innovation: thanks to Rainer Typke,
there is now a professional bug-tracking system
(ipe.compgeom.org/bugzilla.html).  It's actually so professional that
I found it somewhat intimidating at first (there must be twenty or so
settings on the query page).  But it's really extremely helpful in
tracking bugs, so I would kindly ask everyone to use it, in the
unlikely case that any future bugs would occur :-) It's not that
important that you get all the options right, as long as there is a
description of the problem (and you can attach a file that exhibits
the problem).

This has taken a bit longer than expected because I also changed my
build system behind the scenes quite a bit, because (a) I'm using CVS
now, and (b) I'm using Linux as the main development platform again.
