We were discussing another release recently. We have at least one
major networking security bug we need to fix, and there are a few
backends which have some outstanding patches yet to commit. I think
perhaps at the end of April these things will be ready. If you are
able, taking a pass through our bug tracker looking for things we
might have missed would be helpful.
