which uses the Gnome libraries.  So unless/until gtkhtml3 is ported to

GtkPrint, we have the options:
1.  Stick with Gnome printing and keep the ability to print html
2.  Move to GtkPrint and lose the ability to print html parts;
3.  I don't see a third option.

I would vote for 2 - I am not a big fan of HTML mail anyway, and gtkhtml3 will most likely be ported to GtkPrint model one day.

PS. I think we have accumulated a number of patches since last release and current CVS seems quite stable to me. Does anybody see problems with CVS that should delay a next release?
