I agree that we have enough changes to justify a release, and IMHO we need 
to look into polishing what we introduced so far up until we are happy 
to release. This means usability and performance patches mostly. Some 
smaller or deeply worked on features will surely meet the deadline, but 
IMHO there is no point in pushing the deadline forward.

DrupalCon (coming in a month) will probably be about new things, further 
development, and it should kick off another round of improvements coming 
for another new release. Drupal HEAD is in a pretty good shape now, is 
quite stable, so it is a good base to build upon it. I hope last 
DrupalCon's humorous comments about an uncertain release date will not 
come back this time :)
