I'd like to approach this gently. Historically, there's been no formal release process. I'm not inclined to start out by introducing any sort of heavy weight procedure.

I'll poke things as best I can over the next couple weeks. I encourage everyone else to do the same. I'll keep track of what's working and what's broken and make it available publicly. At some point, we can decide as if things are too embarrassing to release or not :-)

For instance someone (Andzrej?) mentionned  ARM in system mode is half
slower than it was before TCG.  Also the ARM target needs some fixing.

Perhaps doing at least one release candidate to get feedback (and focus on
fixing reported bugs) would be appropriate.

A release doesn't have to be perfect to be useful. I think what matters most is whether something is likely to be fixed in the reasonably near future. We're going to have some regressions compared to 0.9.1. There are a number of platforms that are no longer supported (ia64 and s390, for instance) but we could wait another year and I doubt these features would appear.
