Do you also prefer a 2.4.5 version to a 2.5 afterwards? (that is to say taking
more time to try to implement more features to 2.5 instead of releasing it as-is)

I think major bug fixes are now committed to the 2.4 branch.
I did not try to backport all the POD documentation, new sample files,
some utilities (actsync, docheckgroups, scanlogs, etc.) and other
cosmetical changes or little improvements.
I hope it is fine with that.

I shall submit an updated NEWS file this afternoon.
