Suggest one in the patch. :)

Not necessary, I think.

We expect to release 300alpha1 in December.

Stable at the MzScheme and MrEd levels, at least for Unix and Mac OS X.
I'm less certain about Windows, so I'm testing and working under
Windows this week.

Some parts of DrScheme are still catching up in v299, especially the
teaching languages and some tools. For those who use DrScheme in a
class, it's not yet time to switch.

For everyone else who normally uses the CVS-based builds, I recommend
moving to v299, or at least trying it out (and let us know if it
doesn't work!). I switched completely months ago, and I've been giving
talks and demos in v299 for several weeks with no problems.
