So, as you'll have seen, I didn't do a 2.3.5 this weekend.
This was mainly because I was hoping to get to the bottom of
<http://gna.org/bugs/?21272>, a Windows crash which is causing pain to
at least one LT32 player.
However, it's now looking likely that this might just be a Gtk version
thing, so in fact the mere act of making a new release (presumably with
a new Windows Gtk library) might make it go away.
On the other hand, there are a whole pile of other Windows crashes in
2.3.4 that have come to light recently which don't look Gtk-shaped or
like things we've already fixed. So we might want to hold out for fixes
for some of those, possibly.
If we're to have a 2.3.5 release this year, I think it'll have to be
next weekend or the weekend after.
