Did # of blows for priests get nerfed in 3.5?

I'm currently playing a Dwarf Priest in 3.5 and @ has maxed out at 4.0 blows per round (6.0 with a +2 extra attacks weapon). I thought only mages maxed out at 4.0 blows. Warriors 6.0; Mages 4.0; Everyone else 5.0. Am I wrong about this, or did blows for priests get reduced in ver 3.5?

Priests have maxed at 4 blows/round for as long as I can remember. They're really only better in combat than mages in that they don't have massive STR/CON penalties and actually get a positive modifier to their hit die.

That was changed somewhere after 3.0. They used to have five blows. They have it at 2.9.3, but no longer in 3.0.9. Might have been changed exactly at 3.0 when JLE changes got incorporated into game.

[edit] tried to find that in changelists but didn't found. It's not listed there.

I just checked the git logs and it was already 4 at 3.0.7s3 when takkaria first established the git repository. So it changed before then.
