Hello there,

R1a3 is no longer a suitable development platform.
The current code cannot be compiled out of the box.
IMO, that alone is reason to do a release.

On top of that, a new release would let more people see the progress:
 * wpa_supplicant
 * POSIX signals support
 * radeon_hd driver
 * updated MESA
 * improved hardware support (Sandy Bridge support for example)
 * Debugger now included
 * vast stability improvements
 * updated translations


 I can help with software testing, hunting for regressions etc. The radeonHD 
driver is still somewhat fickle about certain card and monitor combos.
