I used random 0.9.x versions mostly since June, mostly because of my
work on Romanian translation. As far as I remember, except for a gap
during 5 to 20 August approx (I've been away), the program never crashed
*at launch time*, this is something new, only present in the last 3-4

I never knew that version 1.0 is already on the way, I was thinking
that this is a simple renumbering of these days upcoming version.

So where should one test a compilled 0.9.x version ? Let's say for
Windows. Form jb's site *only* ?
How is this supposed to be known ?

Perhaps I want to test it on my EEPC. The low space there prevents me
to compile it on site, so I have to install a static Debian version.
The nightlies are now with version 1.0 already ? So where should I take
a 0.9.x Deibian version for testing purpose ?

Yeah, but then after the official version launch you may be overhelmed
with complaints on forum, from users, not from testers ...

My 1 cent :)
