Mapserver 5.0.0

Here is news of the Mapserver-5 release found at nabble.com Mapserver-5.0.0 released

I looked at a beta of this because I had some problems using underscore characters in the text field of a shapefile. That problem appeared to be fixed using the 5.0 beta. See the bug fix ticket.

I don't know if I will upgrade right away because while testing this, some of my code stopped working and I don't currently have the time to fix all of that right now.
