I can not speak for magnum, but I do believe that J5 has been completed, as 
of the -jumbo5-RC7 version.  It is an accumulation of all work put in, 
adding new items or fixes since jumbo-1.

All changes/additions I was looking at putting into it have been completed, 
and it passes all build and runtime testing that I have been able to throw 
at it.  I believe that the testing magnum usually does has not been posted 
to the list for this version.  Also, hopefully it could be build and runtime 
tested against some of the MAC envionments.

I will sit down this morning, and look at some of the older freshmeat 
notices, etc, and work with the j1-j5 diff patch, and build a notice 
suitable for the changes, and the limitations of that format.
