[Qgis-developer] Ready to branch?

I don't know if the branching already happened and I am in no position to
influence you developers about when to branch - but I would like to know
if the issues around nested grouping and more powerful re-arranging of
groups and layers are properly tested and bugs resolved?

If not - I would like to suggest that it would receive more attention by
testers and developers before going forward with the release.

I recently heard that often layers aren't properly turned off and on
properly, sometimes the wrong layers and that sometimes dragging around
layers or groups acts weird.

I think that it is one of the major features in QGIS 1.6 (thank you
Jürgen) and that it should be properly tested before the release.

If the issues still exist I would not go forward with the release, as this
is an area that would immediately be visible, cause troubles and hurt
QGIS' reputation if it doesn't work as expected.

A concerted effort of users and developers should be made to resolve those
issues if they still exist.
