I am in two minds.

On the one hand, I know that there are still outstanding issues in the
GUI particularly with the import feature.    On the other hand I know that 
several rather serious GUI issues which affected the current released
version have been fixed, particularly those which some users had
reported as crash-on-save.

I suppose the overriding question when deciding whether to release or
not is:  Will the new release behave better than the existing release?

The GUI is ultra difficult to test in a systematic way.   We have put
out a number of appeals for people to test pre-release versions, but not
many people respond to those appeals.  So perhaps the best thing to do
is to release, and wait for people to report the bugs they think
