I have not produced any release. The number up in the webpage is
obtained from ecl/src/configure.in and it marks the different
evolution. I am afraid I will not be able to produce a new release
before the month ends (maybe Friday?) so the release number will
probably change in the mean time.

Please refrain from using CVS until we have sorted out the remaining
problems. Yesterday I found one regarding clear-input and the new,
unbuffered streams, and I expect a couple more as the week proceeds. I
expect this all to stabilize in a couple of days.
