We have an svn branch for the release and we think it's ready to ship, 
but we decided we wanted to wait for some results from a very large 
GStreamer regressions test that tests across about 40,000 samples - some 
from the mplayerhq samples archive, some from elsewhere.

We thought it would be better to have the results of this QA before 
pushing out the release and we hope to get them today. Unless this test 
throws up anything we can't fix fairly quickly, we hope to make the 
release within the next few days. And maybe if it does throw things that 
can't be fixed quickly, we'll make a release now with notes on known 
issues and make another release in the not too distant future. We'll 
have to decide what we want to do.
