One thing that's turned up, though as it's both fairly specific and purely graphical, I wouldn't blame you for holding it off to a later patch.

Remove Floor Layer Item and Remove Item build markers aren't displaying their effects on platforms or pressure plates:

Speaking of non-game logic bugs which affects playability, there is also one old bug:
http://forum.caravelgames.com/viewtopic.php?TopicID=40904

If a room has non-zero darkness and the player is currently invisible, at the double placing turn the render glitches for every tile rerendered inside the smelling range, which would only render Layer 0 objects, without the darkness.

I encountered it in a room of EP, and it is severe because you can't see anything at the path of the glitch, even all monsters, potions and force arrows.

I've never heard of anyone encountering that as a part of a published hold so I'm unsure if it's really urgent enough to further delay 5.1. (Also I just don't want 5.1 to be held up any longer :fun )

Well, since we'll need to wait for the spiders to finish munching on all demos anyway, that might just give the time to fix one more such pure graphical bug which has nothing to do with ruleset and demo verification.

(i.e No, that probably won't delay 5.1.)

I apologize if I sound harsh and I am targeting anyone in particular here, just a trend that's been really getting on my nerves lately.

Please stop asking us to fix anything that is not related to game rules in 5.1. We've been working for a year on this update out, mostly because I wanted to completely stabilize the ruleset and a feature creep creeped in. And while that's been mostly okay while 5.1 was still in active development, right now, on the threshold of the release, we must concentrate on ensuring what has been done so far is working correctly.

Asking for more fixes is doing a disservice to everyone, because each fix-test cycle takes another couple of days.

So please, next time, when a new version is about to be released and you want to request a bug fix ask yourself these questions:
1. Is it a critical issue that's going to impact majority of the players, break demos or change gameplay?
2. Is fixing this issue worth waiting additional 1-7 days for me?
3. Is fixing this issue worth waiting additional 1-7 days for everyone else?

Sorry :( I just thought there might be room to sneak in a minor bugfix or two.

In any case, it's a good news that 5.1 will be up for release very soon!

Well...we've already been sneaking in multiple minor bug fixes for a while now, and we have to draw the line at some point in order to focus on completing the release. I have to agree with Skell that this trend can be frustrating for players. Take heart, though. This isn't a new thing. It seems every time we've done a major version upgrade in the past, right around the day we're about ready to release, someone decides either to start posting a bunch of new bug reports or bumping old bug reports, hoping these issues will all get fixed at that moment. They will, eventually, just probably not in the version that is going out the door. We really do appreciate these issues being reported. Please don't worry -- we'll get them fixed in a subsequent patch. Thank you for the help!

Looks like there's nothing else game-breaking that anyone is aware of at this moment, so I'm going to start preparing the official 5.1 release builds at this very moment. Thanks, everyone, for your patience and support to get 5.1 released! :)

I see that the Deadly Bar of Death is at 100%. Where is the release post? Is there going to be a big post where you give a change log and download link?

EDIT: Looking at the downloads page I see that only the windows version of 5.1 is available. How long will it be until we get the other OS added to that list?
