FOSS4G2008 is a nice, but artificial, target. I would personally rather 
see a stable app with a good initial API, even it it takes a tad bit 
little longer than desired. QGIS won't have any better rep if is 
released for FOSS4G2008 but limps along, rather than being strong and 
released after the conference.

Nonetheless, I would also like to extend a thanks everyone who has 
submitted bugs and ideas and would like to encourage more people to get 
involved - we need more coders!
