Re: Release 2.3.16

Sweet! Could we have a patch file with only the changed files, like apmuthu provided with 2.3.15? I don't know if there are more people out there,  but I wouldn't mind one  with every release.

Plus, a link in the news item to the corresponding forum post might also be a good idea, to make  it easier to comment. :-)
