I expect 7.9 to happen in January or February and 8.0 in March or
April.  I don't think 7.9 will contain major changes, only small new
features.  The most significant change in Org 8.0 will be a more
systematic use of the new export engine.

In a word: 7.8 contains more new features over 7.7 than 8.0 will 
contain over 7.8.

No assurance at all.  There will be releases with more features in 
the next coming months.  But I believe none of these features will be 
as important as the two I described in my previous email.

IMHO the feature freeze would make more sense if there was a deadline
for the Emacs release.  

Is there one?

Planning Org releases and merges would be easier then.
