Well, looking through the change log, about 90% of the changes since the last 
release have contained the word 'fix'.  A lot of the changes I made were fixes 
because PyObjC discovered bugs in GNUstep.  I'd like to tighten up some of the 
ARC-related stuff, but I'm not too bothered about the stability of things like 
ARC / GC - they're not yet used by many people yet - but lots of the other 
stuff has been bug fixed since the last release.  

We don't have many new untested features, but we do have a lot of fixes since 
the last release.  I think we've actually done more bug fixing since the 
release than during the code freeze period prior to it...
