2.5.0 should be released sometime soon. There were some recent patches
submitted related to Japanese text processing, and some confirmation
on some items need to be done before 2.5.0 release is done.

BTW, you may be interested in the following note I added to the
TSLICE docs for 2.5.0:
NOTE The value of the TSLICE resource is used to determine the number
of messages to update, before and after by thread, when a new
message is added. To insure that messages within a thread slice
are updated when a new message is added, make sure the before and
after ranges specified for TSLICE is equal to maximum before and
the maximum after range arguments specifed in the uses of the
$TSLICE$ resource variable. For example, if you have $TSLICE(0;4)$
and $TSLICE(3;3)$ in message layout resources, you should set
TSLICE to 3:4.
If you only use $TSLICE$ once, it is best to set options for
thread slice formatting via the TSLICE resource so you will not
have anything to worry about.
Jeff, I did not notice the above issue until after I sent you a patched
resource file using $TSLICE$.
To summarize the note above: Some message pages may not get properly
updated to reflect changes in $TSLICE$ listing. This can occur if
the message is more than one message away from a new message in a thread.
I consider it not a major problem since the next/prev links still
function properly. However, older messages may not properly show the
latest slice representation, and as the reader goes through the thread,
the slice listing can appear to grow as they go from older messages to
