gramps-0.1.3 has been released. In addition to fixed some bugs, it adds support for the ISO-8859-1 character and ANSEL encoding in GEDCOM files. This should allow gramps to be used with languages other than english.
Also, thanks to agutarra, gramps is available as an RPM in addition to source. The .rpm may require rpm version 4 or greater to work - I have not been able to test it on anything other than a RedHat 7.X system.
