So what is the state now?
As a background, we're working quite hard on Boost.Geometry, as a team,
finishing code, reviewing each others code, merging git-branches,
fixing, etc. To decide which features will make it to release, a
confirmed schedule would be very welcome. It does not need to be ASAP (a
little more time is always welcome), but it is very convenient to know
when things should be finished, and to know that (as John suggests) two
weeks in advance.
