Dear all

Tonight (11/6/2007) we will finally tag the 0.8.1 release. We were
hoping to do it this weekend but various issues prevented that. Before
we do the final tag, could I ask all of you with your varied operating
systems and distributions to make a quick test build and verify that
it compiles. If it builds successfully please just reply to this email
with a one liner e.g.

Ubuntu dapper i386 -- compiled ok

or (hopefully none of these) e.g.:

Windows 3.11 for Workgroups - compile failed

svn co https://svn.qgis.org/repos/qgis/branches/Release-0_8_0 qgis0.8.1

Please note that we will not be fixing any more bugs for this release
and all currently open bugs will be pushed forward to 0.8.2  / 0.9, so
really all I want to know is if what we have in SVN  builds for
everyone or now.

Separately to this, I would like to ask people who are able to help
with packaging  to please enlist yourselves here:
http://wiki.qgis.org/qgiswiki/PackagingHelpers so that we can
coordinate packaging efforts. I saw some debian packages for the
preview versions of QGIS 0.8.1 floating around - were these made using
cmake or auto* for the build. Is there anything that needs to be added
to svn prior to tagging for packaging purposes?

Many thanks for your patience with the emergence of this release....
