AFAIK it has only bug fixes (to browser, email etc which you can
fairly well find from public bugzilla, see Andre's mail).

Hm. Maybe one could think of the maemo-launcher change as a "feature"
although it's "a bit" developer oriented...

The maemo-invoker that proxies default applications launch requests
to maemo-launcher, raises the signals into which the launched
application terminated so that the maemo-invoker caller receives
them properly.  However, if the application terminated to SIGSEGV
that creates a core-dump also for maemo-invoker which could confuse
developers and testers (as maemo-invoker core dump gets the application
name and the actual application core dump is named maemo-launcher).
Maemo-invoker has now disabled core dumping for itself, so there's
only one core dump[1].  :-)

[1] You can get core dumps by adding "core-dumps" directory to your
memory card that has enough space for them.  Note that without
installing the "rich-core" package which compresses the core dumps
(and adds some extra information to them), core dumps can be *huge*
as they include all application memory (check VMSIZE from "top" to
see what I mean).
