Sounds like it's time to start in on getting the Inkscape 0.37 release
process underway. There's been a lot of great effort from many
people going into this release, and we're all looking forward to
delivering 0.37 to the community. I read over the latest version of the
release notes yesterday and am amazed at how much has been acheved, well
beyond the planned objectives.
The steps we need to take to do this release are the same as before.
1. First, there are a couple last code cleanup tasks that remain: We
need to remove the #if 0 code, and we need volunteers for that. We
need to finalize the code style guidelines, which basically means
getting concensus on keeping tabs or converting tabs into 4-spaces.
2. Next we will declare feature freeze. Anyone working on features
right now will need to either get them in by then, or delay/disable
them until after the release, or move the work onto a branch. In
addition to removing high priority bugs we need to ensure we haven't
lost features (like grid snapping).
3. Once the tarball release is cut, I would like to see us take an
organized approach to creating and testing the binary packages, so
that they are consistently named and of high quality. I'll try to
draw up a plan for this for us.
4. Lastly is to get word out about this release. We have tasks
identified in the roadmap for doing this. A suitable goal would be
to match the Sodipodi 0.32 page view and download numbers. I think
we can do it if we put some organized effort into it; we've got a
good product and a lot of people will be thrilled to get word about
