No. There should be. The question is should we release a patch version, or a 1.5
full support version. There's a bunch of stuff that will break GUMP, so I
haven't been adding those things, at present. My Vote would be to make a
protocol breaking release, that had 1.5 full support.

Actually, the annotation support is all commented out at present, as it would
break compatibility. And no it is not complete. the "Gen" side has yet to be
done, as well as a good bit of testing on the visitor side. I plan on flushing
out the visitor parts this weekend, then perhaps the gen stuff next.

The current build works fine with current projects.

The current svn version should still work with your application.
