Not yet. My current task list:

1. Improve threaded comment handling, such as being able to delete a  
comment in the middle of a thread without messing up the rest of the  
thread (almost done; testing before committing)

2. In the WordPress importer, ask the user if they want to discard  
protected and private posts since Zine only recognises public posts.

3. Add the ability to make protected and private posts like in  
WordPress (private should be trivial).

4. Write a LiveJournal importer that can handle both journals and  
communities. The current process of LJ -> WordPress 2.8 (svn trunk) ->  
Zine is lossy.

5. Add facility to upload media files and embed in posts. Handling  
external files is part of the architecture but has no supporting code.  
Once we get here, Zine will have all the features most bloggers will  
ever need.

6. Add a rich text editor and possibly live preview in the entry form.  
Someone's made a YUI-based plugin that replaces the standard form, but  
this sort of thing is fundamental and ought to be in the core  
distribution. If anyone is willing to transplant WordPress's editing  
widget, that will be great.

7. Add an AtomPub interface so folks can use desktop-based editors  
(Zine already does Atom for syndication).
