Version 0.9 is almost done. Most of the features I wanted to implement
(and there are many of them ) are done, with the only feature left is to
reimplement the cloud plugin, initially only to support amazon (rackspace
will come in a later version). I am working on implementing it (funnily
enough, no amazon cloud library is good enough to do what I want, not even
amazon formal one) and once its done 0.9 will be released.
In the meantime, and because of the scope of the release, I would love
people to start using 0.9 and see if they can help flush any problems with
it. Mainly focusing on things that might broke from 0.8, but also, if
possible, testdrive the new features like facets, new Java API, reuse of
work directory (to name a few).
