Release notes 

It's been a couple years since 0.97, high time for a new release!

This release brings a slew of enhancements and bug fixes. Much
attention is given to layout configuration functionality and
customization. Tabs functionality is better polished; there were many
corner case type bugs here. The preferences UI (which includes the vast
bulk of the applications' widgetry) is better polished and numerous
quirks and bugs removed. Scrollbars and scrolling is also made more
solid in this release.

One of the principle goals for this release was conversion to Gtk3.
Unfortunately this is still a work in progress, but since progress on
that front is slow, we decided getting an interim release out with all
these improvements was probably more important than waiting until the
conversion was finished. For the interested, the Gtk3 work is being
done in a development branch which you're welcome to peek into.

Going forward, our plan is to continue with a 0.99 bug-fix release and
then a stable 1.00. The 1.x branch will remain Gtk2-based and focused
on stabilization, while a new 2.x branch will be focused on the
Gtk3/Python3/GObject porting work.
