ANNOUNCE: Conglomerate 0.7.7

Conglomerate 0.7.7 - "Who Frobnicates the Frobnicators?"

Conglomerate is a free, user-friendly XML editor. It is particularly
aimed at DocBook, but should be able to handle any XML document type.

Numerous bugs have been fixed in this release, together with some visual
improvements. However, Conglomerate is still UNSTABLE, and not yet ready
for heavy-duty production use. I used it to write these release notes in
DocBook without having to resort to Emacs, and had a single crash during
a half-hour editing period. Notable remaining problems are lack of
speed, inability to deal with external entities, and crashes when
nesting certain elements inside certain other elements.

Please test the new code as we work towards stabilising things towards a
0.8.0 release. You can download it frmo the usual place:
