Most of the system libraries and some major apps have not been upgraded since 5.3, but a lot of smaller apps and utilities have, notably those created "in house" by our very enthusiastic developers such as zigbert, rcrsn51 and 01micko (plus more guys!)
What really has progressed significantly since 5.3 is the Woof infrastructure, bringing a plethora of bug fixes and enhancements. These improvements have made it imperative to release a new Wary (and Racy).
Note that Wary 5.5 has the same old 220.127.116.11 kernel (configured for uniprocessor i486 CPU), as we have a heap of 3rd-party analog (dialup) modem drivers compiled for it, plus others. Note also, most of those modem drivers are included in the live-CD .iso file -- which is partly why Wary is so great for "retro" uses such as analog dialup and old hardware.
