Most likely the last release candidate for this series, watch out for 0.8.0 very soon.
It has been a long way: the majority of the code written during Google Summer of Code 2008 had been in the repository since late last year along with a few other new features such as the new libpano projections.
Nevertheless it was only available to those few courageous individuals who are not afraid of rough edges (the occasional crash) and who possess the so rare skills of basic English reading and typing that are absolutely necessary to follow the instructions.
Some of them were even able to make sense of the instructions beyond reproducing them. They contributed by helping others following in their footstep, and they even contributed some patches, automated the build process, etc. You know who you are, thank you, friends!
While 0.8.0 will be soon out, the clock is ticking. Students are at their mid-term evaluation with their projects for Google Summer of Code 2009 and it looks like we’ll have new features to add soon. Plus, there is some other user-contributed code that will be integrated after 0.8.0.
Full steam ahead!
