Will new features be alowed between March 5th and March 31st? I am asking because
there's one thing that I really would want for 4.0. Specifically, now the variables
widget does not allow to set format of variables, and does not remember open/close
state at all, which makes it pretty useless. I actually planned to fix this by
March 1st, but as usual this requires some GDB hacks, and there's no way I could
meet this deadline.
