1.3.5 is not the "recommended" development version - that is 1.3.4. We do not 
recommend an unstable unreleased svn version normally. We have two 
recommended versions: for stable use
1.3.4 for development/testing use

1.3.4 has bugs that are being fixed in its next-in-line version, 1.3.5. Once 
1.3.5 is released, there will be an announcement deprecating & replacing 

Please stop spreading the confusion by talking about recommendations to use 
1.3.5svn for real work. It is not ready for this at all. It is there for 
testing that its bugs, and 1.3.4 bugs selected to be fixed in 1.3.5, are 

For normal work:
For testing 1.3.3.x bugs: (yes, it's already different to
For testing and experimenting: 1.3.4
For testing and expermenting with 1.3.5 before its release: 1.3.5svn
