Not in an official release since 2.2 isn't out yet.

A candidate would be the constructor of
"TricubicSplineInterpolatingFunction" (in package "analysis.interpolation")
that currently throws a checked "DimensionMismatchException" but should
throw an unchecked "DimensionMismatchException" (from the new "exception"


P.S. I'd like to perform similar changes (precondition violation generates
     an unchecked exception) in the whole source code but for everything
     released in 2.1 and before, that'll have to wait for the developement
     of version 3.0. :-{
