I think there might be around four hundred commits between that release and SVN rev 8433. I haven't counted them so there could be more. This should mean many bugs fixed (charset management, pdf export, UI) a couple experimental features and some things noticeably improved, especially in (conservative) LaTeX import/export. Being Qt based, the interface is also more responsive than in the X11 version.

If we only found the time to write that newsletter we once discussed...
