ok, right :)

So, let's set a release date, for example in one week ? 
2.2.0-final on Sunday 26. August.  Today is D - 8.

Yes, it is pretty stable :)  Just tested a lots of things,
and only had problems with the user administration pages: 
adding users is ok, but not editing or setting a db to an
user. Could you also make some tries with this page ?

Suggestion for the release plan / tasks list:

[ ] every developper tests so many things as possible, and
    in both modes (adv auth and std), especially file upload
    things, and every new features.
[ ] redesign of the http://phpmyadmin.sourceforge.net/ page
[ ] write a list of major changes/improvements since version 2.1.0
    (the changelog is _way_ too long :)
[ ] check if the security problems of 2.1.0 are really solved
    (wouldn't be nice to get a security advisory just after
    the release...:)
[ ] prepare a kind of "press release", which can then be used to
    announce the release (and reborn) of phpmyadmin to sites
    like lwn.net, php info pages, etc : something in english
    in french would be nice, don't you think ? 
[ ] proof-read the docs
[ ] on wednesday or thursday, I'll pack a 2.2.0-cvs package,
    and ask the people on the users forum to make some last
    tests just in case...
[ ] ... something else ? please add here :)

I'll prepare a draft for the press release the next days,
and we can then discuss it here.

good 33600 modem... (rediscovered that ssh -C rules :)
