Oh, so you know how 0.9 will be? I don't think so. Neither do I, but...

> my vote is a "HELL NO!" for 0.8.1

I agree. The current nightly is far away from 0.8.1. The render engine make a very polished impression. The UI is fast and stable. Maybe they are bugs in some of the advanced GUI features, but I didn't find them yet. So if 0.9 is quite stable, I'm sure my vote will be "HELL YES!" very soon. Of course it's your right to say NO. We will see, what the majority thinks. :)

Yeah, but we have some people doing the dirty work and looking for icebergs. Let's enjoy the ride until the boat is NOT sinking.
