What Peter wanted to say is: there won't be any 2.0.x releases but we 
want the next release to be 2.2.0 instead.

Well, depends on what you want to do ;) The 2.0.x series has certain 
problems with memory handling depending on your application. Depending 
on the version either variants, widestrings, vararrays or interfaces leak.

I merged the patch but help us to test 2.1.1 as much as possible based 
on the revisions known to be good 
( so 
we can get 2.2.0 out asap (head is currently broken due to heavy rewrites).

The perfect solution for your users would be if you run daily regression 
tests with trunk and tell users which revisions work good with Zeos 
(currently 5191 is a good bet) and tell us if you get worse test results.
