v4.5.7 .tgz file - 50% bigger than v4.5.6?

Hi,
Just wondering why the v4.5.7 .tgz file is around 50% bigger than v4.5.6?
RHEL4 files:

zcs-4.5.7_GA_1319.RHEL4.tgz ==> 308,875,447

zcs-4.5.6_GA_1044.RHEL4.tgz ==> 208,442,997
(please don't tell me it contains 100MB of Yahoo stuff... :eek:)

I seriously hope you are kidding about Yahoo!
I know everyone is afraid of Yahoo! bloat, but conspiracy theories this quickly...come on... ;)
219 fixes..it's been over 2 months since an update..plenty of time for additions. Check out the product portal, there's a lot of stuff there.
I know it takes time for deals to get inked and many meetings...etc..etc.. But I'm pretty sure, based on what I've read/heard, that the Yahoo! acquisition announcement was a surprise to most employees at Zimbra too. Let's give it a little time....geez.

Of course I was kidding - geez, lighten up...
But back to the original point of the post - there may be 219 fixes in this release but the fixes themselves shouldn't account for an increase of 100MB in the .tgz.

Typically in "dot" releases, not every component gets upgraded. . .however, a lot has gotten upgraded this time.
For example, we've upgraded Java (1.6), ClamAV, LDAP, and lots and lots of components upgrades (all connectors and migration tools were upgraded).
I suspect that's what it is, but Brian/Quanah can answer better.
