According to the changelog, it seems not to be a bug fixing only release:
    *  [tg] Shut up a bogus gcc warning during configuration process
    *  [tg] Spell AT&T consistently in the source code
    *  [tg] Tweak mksh(1) manual page, from wbx@ and «lewellyn:#ksh»
    *  [tg] dot.mkshrc: fix $@ vs. $* mix-up
    *  [tg] dot.mkshrc: add DJB cdb hash function
    *  [tg] Sync with oksh: fix Vi editing mode word erase handling, again
    *  [tg] Skip whitespace between POSIX style shell function name and its
        definition parenthesēs during detection if an alias of the same name
        already exists to be more robust (Debian Closes: #535970)
    *  [tg] Build system improvements for ACK and nwcc, both on Debian sid
    *  [tg] Fix spelling error in changelog discovered by Lintian
    *  [tg] Aligh “set -o nounset” / “set -u” behaviour with future POSIX
        standard, as discussed with GNU bash maintainers, David Korn from AT&T
        ksh93, and The Open Group; prompted by use in Debian; Closes: #539538
    *  [tg] add an unsupported way to make printf(1) a builtin
    *  [tg] Build system and regression test code and comment improvements:
        better and more comments matching reality better; more reliability w.r.t.
        passed CPPFLAGS; more of the MKSH_SMALL changes may be overridden, all of
        them are now enumerated on the webpage; fixed some breakage; portability
    *  [tg] MKSH_NOPWNAM and MKSH_SMALL will now both disable the ~fac/
        (homedir) expansion code wholly if defined, not just getpwnam(3) calls
    *  [tg] shells without job control no longer define the standard “stop” and
        “suspend” aliases (they are pointless anyway); regression tests know
    *  [tg] use system RCS ID macros on MirBSD if decent enough
    *  [tg] shut up bogus gcc 4.5/trunk warnings caused by over-optimisation
    *  [tg] restore ANSI C compilability broken in R38 (speed up, even)
    *  [tg] use memcpy(3) ipv strlcpy(3) if possible and safe and secure

Do you confirm? If it's the case, motu-release should be subscribed, for
a FFe.
