Wow... July is here now. A quick update on where things stand:

There has been a lot of slacking off last couple weeks: with me being 
distracted by binge-watching 3 conferences: TPC::NA[1], FPW[2] and 
YAPC::RU[3], and then getting utterly mesmerized by YAPC::UK[4]. 
Nevertheless work has been marching on:

Sadly I spoke too soon - the introduction of a forgotten last-minute 
extra check blew up a number of downstream test suites, so the coveted 
0.0829xx devrel cycle is still several days off.

A semi-positive development is that due to oring bureaucratic setbacks I 
still have a *little* more time to devote to OSS before signing off. So 
despite the delays it seems I am still on track to ship something 
non-embarrassing in the end ;)

More updates some time mid-next-week.
