Unless TDF is going to adopt the absurd Chrome (and now Firefox) version
model, the next version should be 3.5.0 indeed. I guess we (Windows users)
will have to wait :)

As I mentioned before, that is useful for a very limited number of Windows

simply won't do.

I'm sure more Windows users would be available for serious testing if TDF
took the Windows users more seriously and in proportion to the platform
importance (given the sheer number of users)
