I would love to do a release soon. Last time this came up, I think the
big issue was (compilation) performance regression. Has this been
adequately addressed? The other issue is that there are a couple of
doctest failures with Sage. One source of problems is decorators due
to the (ugly) disallowing of function re-declarations, I'll try look
into this one. There are also a huge number of segfaults (see the
bottom of https://sage.math.washington.edu:8091/hudson/view/ext-libs/job/sage-tests/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/log.txt
) which we need to get to the bottom of.
