I guess you've been setting labeling in the vector layer properties
dialog, right? The new labeling engine based on PAL is currently
available as a plugin: enable it in the plugin manager. Then you'll
get "ABC" icon on the toolbar, clicking it will allow you to set
labeling properties for current layer.

Later I'd like to move the code to core library and the labeling
settings will be available directly from layer properties dialog.
