Truly a paperbag release. But there's still hope!
While 0.2.9 had a number of bugs and awful performance, I have to say that the current svn revisions are much, much, better.
Snappy performance (ok, not quite snappy, but snappier than 0.2.0)
Finally a coherent nex/previous/whatever mechanism. The only broken piece is that posts may vanish from view when the feed is updated (and I can fix that, too).
Fixed issues 16,14 and 22
So, 0.2.10, coming tonight, should be a pretty good one.
