dconf 0.8.0 is a bugfixes-only release that (as planned) is almost
entirely unchanged from 0.7.5.  This makes a reasonable update to the
stable release series of existing distributions.

dconf 0.9.0 has a whole host of nice new features:

  - support loading/storing of maybe types in dconf

  - remove NFS detection hackery and rely on XDG runtime dir

  - add proper support for change notification to DConfClient

  - commandline tool improvements

    - reset: reset keys or entire subpaths

    - dump: dump entire subpaths to keyfile format

    - load: load them back again (maybe at a different path)

    - watch: actually works now

  - editor improvements

    - keys now change in editor when changed from outside

    - support for flags

    - show dconf-editor in applications list

  - work around incompatible Vala bindings changes with an #if

  - don't install the bash completion script as executable

  - fix a warning caused by reusing a GError variable

  - other small fixes

I know that dconf 0.9 shows itself in the applications list without an
icon -- we're hopefully getting one soon.
