Description Frank A. Krueger 2011-12-02 12:02:22 UTC
The properties (Left|Right)BarButtonItems retain the array passed to them to prevent the GC from collecting the objects.

However, their animated counterparts Set(Left|Right)BarButtonItems do not retain the array, and apps crash accordingly.

The bindings are missing the same attributes that (Left|Right)BarButtonItem (non-array version) has.
Comment 2 Sebastien Pouliot 2011-12-02 20:02:07 UTC
Fixed. It will be in future releases of 5.x and 5.0.x (but not the ones already branched and in progress)
