Thanks, I had seen some of those items already in your changelog.

I am in the business of trying my bindings for QwtPlot3D with your sip-snapshots (I tried
the 3 december sip) and noticed that enum fields are not accessible.
For instance the following snippet from a *.sip file:

enum AXIS { X1, X2, X3, X4, Y1, Y2, Y3, Y4, Z1, Z2, Z3, Z4, }; // enum AXIS

where AXIS is in module scope does not give access to X1, X2, etc.
(there is an AXIS entry in dir(module), but module.AXIS.X1 does not work).
