I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.

At the time of writing I don’t know of any security issues in the previous version 2.2.3 so the more cautious may prefer to keep this for a week or two… For those who prefer the latest and greatest:
