Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.

Yes, I believe 9.5.p02 is finally a usable version (of 9.5) for optical photon simulations.

This is never a good idea. And remember that bugs in G4 code do not necessarily go back to the 'beginning' and are most often introduced with development. The issue with the surface normal and time was new to 9.5! To my knowledge, the latest working version was 9.4.p03 until 9.5.p02 and now 9.6.p01.
There were no issues with the surface normal in 9.4.p03 and you should not have to update any files.
