Hi Marco

I'm in agreement for getting out a 0.9.1 release as soon as possible.
However Tisham who does the windows builds is away till the end of
November so I think its not possible to release before early Dec as I
dont yet have the complete win compilation environment set up.

I agree that branches shouldnt be merged in till post 0.9.1. I will
try over the next few weeks to get test builds made for all platforms
of the Raster and Editing branches (but without all the extra bits
that Tisham does on win so no python, no grass support). We can post
thos for Agostin and others who would like to participate early on in
the quality assurance process before these branches are merged.

Regards

Tim
