You've already kindly answered my post on Friday and your answer was  
satisfactory for me, so I do not understood why you would suddenly  
get upset about that now. I am not arguing anything here and wasn't.  
It is merely in my nature to try to understand things! Let me recap  
for you:

I understood a post of yours (maybe around 1.1.14?) that you were no  
longer branching the releases. Therefore I assumed there would be no  
branches in SVN for me to check. Apparently I misunderstood your  
point back then, because you are now saying you are in fact still  

Independently of this misunderstanding I assumed that the date  
mentioned in the Release Notes would be the date you checked out a  
working copy for compilation, which, like you just said, is not the  
case so I was on the wrong track anyway.

Therefore my question of howcome a release with date later than the  
fix does not include a fix committed before that date has been fully  
answered. Thank you very much.

To rule out such is-the-fix-in questions for the future it might be  
helpful to mention the SVN revision of a particular release in its  
Release Notes and/or in the mono -V output. Then we can more easily  
check whether a specific commit is included or not. The textual  
change description in the Release Notes does not always include every  
possible detail of what has been changed (and I agree it shouldn't).
