No, I did not explain myself well, sorry.

What I wanted to tell is that I fixed something, but the 3.X branch
already contains other fixes: MATH-1204 fix backported by Thomas 7 weeks
ago, MATH-1203 fix backported by Phil 5 weeks ago, MATH-1208 fix
backported by Phil 4 weeks ago, MATH-1209 fix backported by Thomas 4
weeks ago. I simply added a new fix for another bug.

So version 3.5 would be a regular release fixing a few independent bugs.
The only new feature I will probably add will be a way to dump BSP
trees, but it will live in the tests part of the distribution.

best regards,
Luc
