Ok, this release is taking more time than usual. What happened is that the main target of the release changed after I started working on it (due to popular demand).
So, the next 2 releases will be targeted at those that use unit-tests a lot -- such as myself :)
I won't put on more details right now, but as soon as things are ready for testing (probably at mid-end December) I'll post again about it.
In the meanwhile, critical bugfixes are being fixed and nightly builds are being issued with those fixes if anyone needs those. So, the current nightly is actually the last stable version + bugfixes -- new things are in a branch called 'nose' -- which should give a hint on what's being worked on from its name :)
