Re: 5.1.5 release tag


The tabbing was disabled in the KiCad wxWidgets build because it introduced
some issues with the menu item ordering in our menus (the Apple menu items
for them would end up above the KiCad menu items apparently, when they were
supposed to be staying at the bottom). I am hoping that some work I have
lined up will fix the root cause of that issue, so we should be able to
switch them back on for v6.
