About this release:

This release is *not* the big, exciting,
wow-look-at-all-those-new-features release that just might be coming out
very soon.  It does, however fix a number of bugs in the previous release.

New in this release:

  * Fix for an Overlay get_cursor_coords(), and Text top-widget bug

  * Fix for a Padding rows() bug when used with width=PACK

  * Fix for a bug with large flow widgets used in an Overlay

  * Fix for a gpm_mev bug

  * Fix for Pile and GraphVScale when rendered with no contents

  * Fix for a Python 2.3 incompatibility (0.9.9 is the last release to
    claim support Python 2.3)
