Hi everyone,

while we want to get 0.11 out asap, all non-github users out there,
including all distros (linux, epd, pythonxy, etc) are still using the

problems you may find.  Hopefully there won't be many, as I tried to
apply only clear fixes over 0.10.1, and no new features, but you never

If all goes well, and time permitting, we can use this to cut 0.10.2
next week.  This will allow the core team to focus now on merging all
the remaining work and pull requests to really push 0.11 out, where
all the major development of the last 18 months has gone.
