Even while a lot of energy and time goes to the 2.5 project, there is still love and care for the current stable version. In the past months a very impressive list of fixes has been applied, worth publishing as an official 2.49b release.
Check out the release log for detailed information. It contains little gems like 'Mathutils (quat_a*quat_b) was broken, returned (quat_a*quat_a) instead' and 'Fixed KX_PolyProxy returning improper VertexIndex with mixed triangles and quads with using .getVertexIndex() and .v1, .v2, etc'. I bet you wonder how you managed to get *anything* done with these bugs in place, eh?
