Yes, I agree that a short release cycle would be great. Christmas seems very 
reasonable for a 0.7.1 release.

The feature I would like to implement for 0.7.1 are:

* Select on which track the transition will be applied

* "Sticky" transitions: allow user to "attach" a transition to a clip, then 
the transition will move with the clip. Detaching transition would also be 

* Implement the Project folder stuff (store all files relative to a project in 
the project folder)

* Cache video thumbnails for project tree

* Improve keyframe support (maybe add a keyframe editor), make all frei0r 
effects keyframable

* Redesign the render dialog, more intuitive way for users to understand the 
difference between project profile and rendering profiles

* Spacer tool

* Add / remove tracks

* Maybe also: Full screen playback mode for clip/project monitor

And of course fiy as many bugs as possible. That's a rather long list, so 
depending on the progress the last two items may be postponed
