** Preparing for the 0.96 release **

The roadmap lists the 0.96 release as being scheduled for November 11. I'd like to make a few proposals for this release.
- Merge trunk and new-dialogs. The new-dialogs branch is where most of the recent development has taken place, and it's progressed to a relatively stable place. There are still some plugins that need to be converted, but most of the major ones have been updated, and the ones that have not been updated should continue to work as they did before.
- Ticket cleanup. It seems unlikely that all the tickets currently marked for 0.96 will or should be closed before the next release. Some cleanup/reclassification would make it easier to tell how much needs to be done for 0.96.
- I think a mailing list would greatly improve communications among Xinha developers and users. If it's a hassle to put one up on Xinha.org, I'd be happy to maintain it here: http://www.openplans.org/projects/xinha/lists/xinha-discussion
Assuming I don't hear any objections, I plan to start work on the above in the next couple of days. The work Ray has done on the new dialog system is excellent, and I think getting a release out that includes those improvements will greatly improve the overall Xinha user experience. I know it'll be much appreciated by the folks at my company who use Xinha, and I'm sure the same can be said for many others as well.
