First tarball release is coming this week. Don't be too concerned about the
tarball releases thus far: Firstly we've had all manner of problems with the
*_DISABLE_DEPRECATED flags, which we've just had to wait for; plus, there is
a fairly valid argument that says early tarball releases can get in the way.
There has been plenty of testing from CVS, which serves the most effective
audience for testing at this stage of the release.

We won't be unreleased in December. We will be having API/ABI freeze. The
only thing that is uncertain at this point is GTK+, and that's pretty much
the only thing that will affect our schedule.
