  As expected, I made the release of 0.9.9 today, it is tagged in git and
available at:

  Apparently some people expect the next one to be 1.0.0, but more
realistically it should be 0.9.10 and occuring in a month from today :-)

  So this realease is a relatively light one with around 150 commits
i.e. half the usual amount, I assume most people envoyed the end of year
vacations :-) . The content is in a large part focused on local
