The latter needs some explanation: I've made a translation of PPQ into Russian (at last!), which involved some in-depth raking of its contents. Thanks to that, I was able to find and fix what I think was the majority of the nasty errors that escaped me all the time. Now I'm quite sure the product is bug-free at last!").
