Okay, this was not clear from the simple sentence:
Major changes:
- Uses native resources instead of Lazarus resources: smaller binary

I don't know about special issues with certain OSes.
I am just under the impression that 4.8.7 is
tested (successfully) on more OSes than 5.5
so issues *may* occur with 5.5.
Therefore I would be on the safe side when using 4.8.7
(especially as I don't need any of the changes in 5.5 as far as I see)
