when I read the release notes, I was puzzled: I have been using nightlies regularly and I have the impression that there should be much much more new and enhanced in this release. I didnt track changes so I cant say in detail, but things like labels, save complete site, save text, DOM speedups and others have been added since 0.9.7, no? Mozilla should take more care in telling people what a good product this actually is! (e.g. the austrian daily press "der standard" has an article that simply calls this a bugfix release!)
