Thanks, Scott, I was not aware of this. I'll go and make the necessary
changes in the next few days.

Hm, we went through a lot of trouble to keep this Release compatible to
3.2, and this is indicated by the 3.2.1 release number. In the past,
incrementing the minor number indicated that changing the implementation in
an existing project needed some reorganisatiuon. This should not be the
case in the new release.
However, you are right, there are lots of new features.
I'm undecided. Any other opinions ?
