1.0 will probably be out some time around August or September.

HOWEVER, the features will be available in the 0.7 series of  
developmental* releases (starting later this month) so we can get  
feedback on bugs and the general usability of new features.

* Developmental in the sense that:
    - there will be new features added (or possibly removed)
    - the behavior of features may change
    - the configuration syntax may change
    - various features will generally not be stable or complete
    - there will probably be more bugs than usual

Which can sound a bit scary, but the more people try it out, the more  
likely things will be usable, functional and bug-free when we lock  
everything down for the 1.0 stable series.

Yeah, it seemed like a good idea at the time but it has been clear for  
a while that it was a huge mistake.
