MP6 1.0

Here we are in the tenth week of the MP6 experiment, and with it comes our tenth release, 1.0. And while the version number is simply the one that comes after 0.9, it’s also beginning to look nearly complete. We’ve worked our way through our primary to-do list, concentrating now on responsive issues and core issues for which we’ll be submitting patches. Here’s what’s new this week.
