Any news? In order to make it into Debian jessie, time is really
getting short. Of course, you may not care much about Debian, but
it's still a rather popular distro, and importantly, it's one of the
slowest, so if nothing happens, Debian stable will contain a
seriously broken (esp. WRT new features) make version for something
like 2 years.

I understand (from own experience) that you want to fix as much as
possible before a release, but in this particular case, would you
mind making a bug-fix release ASAP? You still can do a 4.2 with more
fixes a few weeks later (which may or may not get into jessie then).
