    Yes. I will keep binary compatibilities in mind in making
    any fixes toward v0.90. What this means is that in your configure
    step, all versions between 0.89.5 and v0.90 (inclusive) should
    be considered good. Of course, if any serious deficiency was found
    before v0.90, we'll have to deal with it differently.

    Well, v0.89.6 fixed a file descriptor leak in image support
    under some weird conditions that my first run of purify
    did not find. I did not bother to update the platforms
    already in the distribution as v0.90 is coming soon.

    Did not see any UMR or any kind of warning/leaks
    with xforms with purify under Solaris.
