The Status of 0.2

Last Wednesday I pushed out the first release candidate of 0.2. The main motivation behind the release was to get the new caching code (needed by matplotlib) out into the wild as soon as possible.

However, soon after my mentor, Michael Droettboom, sent me a patch adding support for the MathML torture tests to mathtex. These tests resulted in several issues being filed against mathtex. Further, Michael was kind enough to provide patches for many of then — which I hastily added to mathtex.

The result? The mathtex of today has much better rendering than the mathtex of a week ago. However, it does also mean that the differences between 0.2 RC 1 and 0.2 will be substantial — enough to warrant a version-bump. It is for this reason that I am planning to skip the 0.2 release series and go straight to 0.3 RC 1.

I expect to tag the release in the next day or so, but there is at least one issue which I would like to squish before doing so.
