Not yet.

The orca-0.27 tarball was created with revision 163.  I found this
by running

    svn log http://svn.orcaware.com:8000/repos/tags/orca/0.27

and seeing the last commit.

No, not yet.  I don't plan on releasing one until I review these
patches and get them into the tree.

If you had the svn client, you could run in your trunk/orca

    svn diff -r 163:HEAD .

The other way without a client is to do a recursive get on

    http://svn.orcaware.com:8000/repos/tags/orca and 

and then doing a diff -ru yourself with the orca-0.27 tarball.

The diffs are huge though, as many files have been moved or changed.

Yes, I checked www.sunfreeware.com and they don't have one either.
