Let's release now.  As Pierre expressed it's been a long time.  Let's get these fixes to our users and focus on more cleanups in the next release.

+1 for a release.

The documentation is currently very inconsistent, especially w.r.t. configuration, several times it states ("in the upcoming release").

Cleaning it up requires an official release as a stable base, in my opinion.

Greetings from Hamburg,

An update about the current version.

We currently have 27 opened issues, and since the last report, one
have been removed from this list. However, we have created and closed
many issues in the meantime. So far, for this version, 89 issues have
been fixed, some of them really serious.

At this point, I would suggest to release,e because the remaining bugs
are less important than the fixed bugs, and 1.5.4 become to be fishy.
We probably can postpone most of the issues to the next release. Wdyt
