Released 0.0.8 and 0.0.8a last week. Started to refactor the rendering code to become more performant and to become easier extensible. Committed the first pile of changes today, will cleanup the second pile tomorrow and commit it then.
Nice side effect: some crashes in one of my local criawips-fucked-gnome-canvas branch have disappeared. I need to rename the branch to broken-gnome-canvas now, maybe tomorrows pile of changes will make that code work (which would be pretty cool for maintenance as we could reasonably use glade for the main window - at least for everything except menu and tool bars).
I still hope that I get the refactoring done and start working on slide editing to be able to release 0.1.0 this year. Lets see...
