+1 to release it.

However I think we should do two releases:

1st: Branch the 1.5.5 tag, apply the urgent bug fixes (espacially the  
one with growing JDBM store) and release a 1.5.6 form there. This  
would be a pure bug fix release for 1.5.5.

2nd: Bump the current trunk with all the cool new features to  
2.0-M1-SNAPSHOT, fix the remaining bugs, and release a 2.0-M1.

My main concern is that we have 126 @Ignored tests in current trunk  
and I have the feeling that there is too much work-in-progress. I just  
want to avoid that 1.5.6 is less stable than 1.5.5.

Kind Regards,
