:lol: they released a 4.5.0 version faster than releasing 4.4.0, and no 4.4.x
There's nothing that justifies versioning it 4.5.0, they should call it 4.4.1, the license didn't change, that was the only change people wanted, they didn't do it, let'em die like the dinosaurs :!:

They shot themselves in the foot with the new license crap so who cares if they release a newer version!!! Once you screw the community, you will be left in the dark holding your own hands... :twisted:
