I could use some help in reading (or interpreting) Bugzilla. BZ  says 
#586 is fixed (comment and "bug activity" in BZ last June) - but I can't 
see anywhere that it says when it's fixed, what version the fix got 
rolled into, or anything like that.

So 2 questions
1. Is this fix already in 2.5 ?
2. Where in BZ do you look for that info ?

Thanks
