0.9.8 has been released. Was nasty! I need to update docs but after figuring out remaining issues.
Please when you have a chance:
(1) update JIRA to show this has been released
(2) post an [ANNOUNCE] email with link to changes
(3) double check and confirm for me to see if the release was properly done in repo and is svn
(4) upgrade projects depending on shared in trunk and bigbang to 0.9.9-SNAPSHOT
