I moved all the 0.9.6 issues into 1.0 and deleted that release since it seems to not be happening.
8450, 8447 was not fixed, it was marked as a duplicate/won't fix. I removed them from the 1.0 list.
There are still some open issues for 1.0 - which of those will be fixed first? I think it's clear that the build and release process needs to be straightened out before release :)
