In approximately 2 weeks, I will be creating a Stable-1.0 branch from  
whatever is in 'dev' at the time.  After that I will begin release  
testing and, if experience is any guide, 1.0.0 should be ready by the  
first week of November.

This means that there is no better time to check out 0.7 (aka. dev)  
and explore how the new (and old) features work - because once the  
code is frozen^, that's how they're going to work for the next couple  
of years.

Please do take the time to test drive the new code.  There really are  
some great enhancements that make creating and maintaining the cluster  
a great deal easier than before.  I'm sure once you try it, you'll not  
want to go back to 0.6 ;-)

Also, be sure to check out the updated, and much expanded,  
documentation.  You can download the PDF from:


^ Its practically frozen already.  There are at most 2 new features to  
go in (but they'll probably not be ready in time) and only your  
feedback and bug reports will be cause for any last minute changes.
