I'v created a new branch in CVS, called "branch-0_8" and the default
branch will contain 0.9.x code. Once 0.8.10-stable is out, 0.8 will be
the official "stable" branch, and 0.9 the new "devel" branch.
To checkout the 0.8 branch, you will need to use the "-r branch-0_8"
option. I will be updating the online docs to reflect this as well.
The "nightly" tarballs will continue to be built based on the default
branch (i.e. 0.9).
