Hello all,

Its that time of year again and I wanted to let people know that I'll  
be on vacation until Jan 7th and don't intend to be checking email  
until then.  So if your questions aren't getting any response, you'll  
know why :-)

I didn't get time to do a full 1.0 release before christmas (I added a  
number of interesting automated tests which aren't quite done yet), so  
I'm in the process of updating the packages in UNSTABLE for those that  
can't wait:

I'll finish the testing for 1.0.2 when I return in January.

Happy clustering,
