I pulled and will test later :-).

Hm, I don't know. I just run a Debian build & install each time.
One thing which also annoys me is the internal server error caused by
non UTF-8 characters:
127.0.1.1 ZobI6Yf4:127.0.1.1 - [12/March/2009:09:24:20 +0100] ulisses
/cgi-bin/ic/ulisses/index Runtime error: Malformed UTF-8 character (fatal)
at /usr/lib/interchange/Vend/Parser.pm line 112.
Otherwise I see a huge improvement and hope this gets into CVS really soon.
