The bugs are listed here:

5.2.3 was only released this past December, but 5.2.2 has been out since 2012.

What do you mean by "we have a 5.2.1 library for Windows but not a 5.2.3 one"? Do you mean from some pre-built binary repository somewhere?

Is 5.2.3 a must have? Right now we have a 5.2.1 library for Windows (I'm trying to build with it as we speak) but not a 5.2.3 one.
