Or in other words, when following the gnome schedule here:

this would happen:

August 2 - API freeze
August 16 - libchamplain 0.7.90 - with bindings if they are ready

and API will be stable till September 29, which should be a plenty of
time for bindings adaptation. In general API changes should be made at
the beginning of the release cycle (I know I know, I haven't followed
this very much with 0.5 - but it was you who should have stopped me
