0.8 should be released any day now.

All that remains now is a little more testing and fixing any new problems
that we discover during testing.  If no new bugs are found, I hope to be
able to announce the release tomorrow.  But "some time this week" would
probably be a more realistic estimate.

The main new feature that we've been working on is the debugger --
we've been making a lot of improvements to the debugger over the
last couple of months.  We've also put a bit of work into documenting
some of the newer features and a lot of work into fixing bugs.
