1.0.4 is coming real soon, and if it's Linux you care about you'll want
it. That said, there are 2 more issues I'm investigating before a 1.0.4 is
canned and released, and I hope to have both resolved in the next 48

At that point the following will happen:
-Fixes from the head of the CVS tree will be pulled off and applied to the
stable branch, and that tested as 1.0.4-candidate
-1.0.4 will be released
-1.0 releases will continue as warranted, but a 1.1 series of
"development" releases will begin from the head of the CVS tree at points
where complete sets of changes which would be interesting for developers
to use and test become available. This will allow known-versioned
development code to be available, so features can be used without using
"bleeding-edge unknown version CVS source trees".

1.2 series (stable) releases will begin that is warranted; The current
theory is when some autoconf support is ready, but if other new features
arise before than that warrant a new series of stable releases before
autoconf support is ready, that may also happen.
