Last week Bruno released Hugin 2010.0. It was almost immediately followed by binaries for MacOSX (Harry), Debian/Ubuntu (Andreas), Fedora (Terry). The step from release candidate to release had been longer than usual because of the lack of feedback from Windows builders/users whose interest seems to have shifted to the development version, which has already a few new cool features such as a masking tool.
Trunk still has a few rough edges, but overall is ready for the next cycle. Consensus is forming on moving the codebase to Mercurial and potential new Google Summer of Code projects are being discussed on the mailing list.
