Hi aaron,

I think it is time to get a new release out anyway. We have been 
delaying the release for quite some time and there are a _lot_ of new 
features in the current version, releasing a new version will help us 
discover new bugs. I believe in rapid release cycles - and I think the 
current code is already on overtime :-)
When the route flapping issue(and probably lots of other issues) is 
fixed there sould be no problem releasing a new version.

Speak up if you disagree.
