Definitely. Like they said on IRC: We're close to christmas, and a lot
of folks will be busy finding some suitable present for their
significant other and with general christmas stuff. So we should release

Definitely not the latter two. The things I personally could add in
reasonable time are pretty down to... nothing. Not even proper FLAC
support, I'm afraid.

So don't wait for the Evil World Domination Feature being implemented ;)
Prepare a release now! Such a release needs some time and effort to
prepare, so we shouldn't waste any more time.
