I am also in Nicholas' boat as I'm not a real programer and I don't even
play one on TV, so my comments are more on schedule and polish.  

What do you define as "critical".  Are you talking about bugs that crash
kst or make it otherwise not work, or also things like performance
issues that make it not work for certain BLAST-y amounts of live data?

Doesn't January 1st seem like a poor date for release from a QA/testing
point of view.  I would recommend at a week long (or at least a couple
days) testing period to check for bugs/issues that may have crept in.
This window needs to be when people are likely to be able to test it
(aka not on vacation).  Of course, if you're willing to release 2.0.1 by
the middle of January for such fixes, then maybe this is ok (I'm a big
fan of "release early, release often").
