I had tagged the current head as release-0_91_001 a few days ago. This
includes changes Philippe Michel made to the neural nets, and a fix to
the asymmetric MET processing. I've been using this for a few days, and
everything seems fine. It compiles without issue on Ubuntu and Windows
and does seem stable.

Down stream maintainers may wish to use this as a stable release. The
next Windows release will be based on this tag. Hopefully I will get the
build out this week.

The next official Windows build will not be the same as earlier ones. I
have decided to use slightly newer version of libraries (GTK etc) and a
move to Python 2.7. There are some peculiar GUI bugs (In the board
settings) that are resolved by this change. The build process will use
the same build environment as the one I have made available for rolling
your own builds on the Windows platform the past year and a half. This
process uses the normal autogen, configure, make procedure using
MinGW/MSYS rather than a custom Windows makefile.

Because of this one will have to download the full installer to make
sure that all the new dependencies are installed.

For those interested in a preview (development) of this release using
the old build method and older libraries it can be downloaded here:
