Wasn't any criticism, but as I had to *read the documentation* to see
what they did I thought I'd mention.

Yeah, thats a pity!!!

Agreed, there is a fair bit of new code there

I guess it depends when you are planning the next release.  What else
is already in trunk or planned?  Is that enough for a release?  If so
I'd tend to small release quickly then we have time otherwise it might
be a while until the release.

Need time for test + time for test in the trunk, plus any impact on
translation since I havn't really tracked how many strings have been

TODO List (Major items only)

I don't know what the impact on plugins is yet, I tried to build the
plugins but no luck, you have seen my discussions with Chow.  I might
get a chance on the weekend to try it on an old machine where I can
install Geany to the system directories so I can build plugins.

Has anyone tried to build it on Windows?  I don't have windows build capability.
