Everything that should go in for 0.4.5 needs to be committed to/merged into master until then.
Although we've made indeed very good progress on quite a lot of things, I got the impression by following the various discussions and comments here on the forum and on github, that there are still a couple of things people would like to get in for 0.4.5.
Some, like the follow-up PR mel wants to do
for her "Remember window positions" PR#214
really should go in if possible, as they address issues.
So I've decided to postpone the creation of the release branch and the subsequent RC builds for another week, and now plan to do that on Sunday, July 26th. This should give everyone time to wrap up/polish/complete things and getting in anything you think really should be in 0.4.5. We're not a commercial project, we don't need to try to meet any deadlines at all costs, and can take our time. There's no point in rushing things, that is, insist on the original deadline and trying to squeeze in as much as possible within the next two days. This is more likely to give us more troubles than enabling us to get the release out sooner.
That said, please also keep in mind that we need to draw the line somewhere, or we'll never get out our next release
Which means I do not
intend to extend the deadline again, unless there is some really serious issue that absolutely needs to be addressed for 0.4.5. So please everyone, use the extra time wisely and, if you've more stuff you want to get in than you can handle until the deadline, pick the things you think most important and leave the rest for later.
If these proceedings meet general approvement, I'll go ahead as I suggested here (absence of serious objections will be taken as general approvement
