Reviving this thread because it's the proper one to discuss 0.17 (instead
of the "0.16.1" thread).

There are a couple of bugs targeted for 0.17 that have not been closed (or
worked on?) yet. Please look through them as well to see if they a) have
been fixed, b) will be fixed soon or c) should be postponed.
