Another week comes to an end but no sign of v0.7 getting released....
Why don't you release a version with critical bugs fixed and continue adding features at your own pace?

Two reasons. First, the only "critical" bug I'm aware of with 0.6 (aside from redirecting to the wrong page sometimes) is the lack of pagination, which requires a number of fixes for URL routing to get working.
Second, I wanted to remove the "mod_rewrite" requirement and start introducing some basic concepts like categories and plugin hooks.
Even if I just concentrated on the first issue(s), I would have needed to make some significant changes to the code.
In the end, I elected to simply work everything into a complete refactoring of the codebase instead. In hindsight, this may not have been the best decision. At this point though, v0.7 is so close to having a stable release that I don't want to split my time between two code bases.
All I can do is apologize for making everyone wait for this release, but I believe it will be worth it. The functional changes made to the core system make the whole application faster, more extensible, more reliable and more customizable.
I believe I can publish a release candidate by Tuesday (July 6), get feedback for a week while I'm in L.A. and San Diego, then a final release about a week later. This will be the version that gets published to GitHub and will form the basis for the upcoming v1.0 release. There will be a complete upgrade path, so if you're currently using the 0.6 or 0.5 versions, you won't lose anything :)
Thanks for the update Rust
The default theme will also be fixed in the 0.7 release - no more squishy lines or cut-off text.
