Yeah, Daniels is trying to get this project moving again. Hopefully :)

I think we also have some stuff to apply to the current HEAD branch that
could be released as a final 0.10 release.

Someone should go over the list archives for the last months and see if
there's any patch that we should have in there. For example, we had this
patch to make gnome-mud working in Chinese, but it was a bit scary, and
looked like it would break other things.

Hopefully someone more clued can have a look and do something. There are
probably 2 or 3 different mapper-related patches floating around.

Regarding 0.11: well, right now it's basically unusable. As far as I
know you can't even connect reliably to muds, right? There have been a
few libgnetwork releases. Dunno if they help at all with that.
If it can be brought to a minimally usable state that can be released, I
think that could bring some momentum. Right now, everyone who comes into
IRC and asks about the project being dead is directed to the glade
branch and that's the last thing you know about them.

Sorry I have no time to have a look at things, I'm overly busy these
days with other stuff. :(
