It's taken a bit longer than calculated but I'm estimating a release date of August 20 or 21. Some last minute issues to fix but it's soon ready for release! Full nVidia Shield support, an Ouya release will follow a little bit later. See below for more about 0.9.
I have mixed feeling. A first intermediary version I compiled had a very nice speed boost (something like 20%), but was unstabled. So the optim have been disabled on git. I have'nt seen them re-enabled, and another build I made last week showed that, no noticeable speed change. But, again, there is a lot of activity on the git repo, so it may end well
