[ros-dev] State of the 0.2.9 branch

Well, he's the tentative blocker list:
By far the biggest source of complaints. I don't mind it just being
disabled for 0.2.9, as GvG suggests.
That's it really. I tested most apps on my testing cd (Abiword, Gvim,
OO..) and they either worked the same, or had progressed. I didn't
spend too much time testing network apps, due to the FastMutex bug
arty is looking at, but ncftp worked for me.
On the other hand, a great deal of long standing issues have been
resolved. Page files, wallpaper persistence, environment variable
The only real issue I've seemingly encountered is a registry/shutdown
issue. Sometimes I cannot get the page file setting to stick, and get
crashes on shutdown. Since this is new code and does progress
shutdown, I'm hesitant to block 0.2.9 due to those issues.
Please discuss. Unless someone disagrees with these blockers, I will
update their severities tomorrow.

If he can get it fixed soon, great, but I don't think I'll hold up the
release for it.

It's a blocker.

Thanks for your work, GvG.
