I've announced a release target date of Feb 17 with a
freeze on Feb 10.
The border drawing cleanup is done, printing needs some improvements for wide lines, but is working reasonably. All of the release critical cleanups for the style engine are in place and we are looking good for release. Zbigniew's plugin manager has gone in. I've also cleaned up a few annoying aspects of sheet object creation and manipulation. In general this next release promises to be pretty good.
With much help from Morten and Almer the transition to bugzilla has been completed. Many thanks to Martin for all the hard work getting it set up.
