Re: v5 timeline


Sounds good.

I've collected all the things I want to work on for 5.0 properly on
Launchpad now, assigned to myself. These are:

- Fix remaining UI/UX issues with the component selector.
- Investigate possible footprint preview panel locale issues
- Implement footprint selection tags on history items
- Document the new component selector.
- Fix OpenGL compatibility test crash on startup [1]
- Implement clean OpenGL/Cairo fallback [2]

Plus a few more minor things (all assigned to me on Launchpad).

I'd like to get all these done before 5.0, is that okay? I'm not sure
how far off the geometry library and via stitching are so I don't know
how much time that gives me.
