Et Al,

Windows, Linux, Linux NPTL and 64 bit Linux versions are all available

Details on what bugs have been fixed in this release, can be found in the
release notes at:

This release includes a fix for the following known problem with events.
Those of you who have experienced this bug should please test 1.5.2 and
make sure that the problem has been resolved.

"An old legacy bug that has continued to bug us is that, when a client had some
events registered and its network connection had been terminated abnormally
(hardware failure, reset button or task manager), then the server would start
using 100% of the CPU time until the "parent" port (client connection which
called isc_que_events() API routine) reported on its failure.

This bug affected all FB versions (more or less, depending on the
DummyPacketInterval configuration option) and only TCP/IP connections.

Further work has been done to rectify the problem in v.1.5.2. It now appears to be solved."

I would like to thank all of those who worked on the release for their efforts.
