The following fixes have been applied to the release-0-19-fixes branch destined for a 0.19.1 release. These are changes since the 0.19 release. No official 0.19.1 release was ever made, though many packagers were using the -fixes branch. 0.20 having been released, this page is now only of historical interest, and has been locked.
