If a release is useful, I don't think there is any reason to wait for any
particular fixes or features beforehand. Obviously the status quo is years
better than 0.2 (literally) already.  I don't see any harm in doing 0.3
tomorrow and 0.4 next week if worthwhile fixes/features go in then.

The more I think about it, the less I think we "need" a new release. We we need is to spread the word. A good deal of the information available is outdated, many of the websites are not up to date, there is very little information about the L4 port, etc. I think a lot of people get the impression that nothing is happening.

The easiest way to spread the word is to let them (the not-involved)
spread the word.  Nobody  talks about some new lines at the website.
If there is an aim to let people have a look at something that makes a
good impression, some polishing would be fine.  Otherwise the only thing
that is needed is to declare the current CVS snapshot as Official
Develpment Release 0.3.

People are waiting for a release, and things improved.  Some
showstoppers are now fixed.  I think it's time for 0.3.
