I have to agree with Remi. Now that we are stable again, it's time to  
release. We are on schedule and IMO none of the remaining issues are  
really critical. (By critical I mean crash). Else, if you have a quick  
fix for remaining issue we'll build a 0.9.0a. But issues that won't be  
fixed next week, will take time to fix. That will probably be 0.9.1  
time then.

VLC works fine here. Let's be humble toward our *ideal* goal. Don't  
worry people have already been using vlc releases much less stable  
than 0.9.0 :) So I guess they'll be happy with this one.
