I’ve been thinking about this all day. Initially I was planing to add the fix to the map server problem, but it is not
particularly smart to add stuff without an RC I guess. The current release candidate seems to behave quite well,
apart from that one thing which has a known work-around. I’ll plan for a patch release around April 1st. If the
number of reported bugs is low I’ll consider not issuing 5.0.1.

I’ll get to work on packing 5.0.0.
