For my point of view, the framework branch should be as stable as the master
regarding features. I recently only added minor stuff in master, and always
merged that also into framework (same with some bugs).

Further, the last porting TODOs happened a few weeks ago, about reviving
icon markers in lists (if a call is part of a recursive call cycle).

So yes, I can switch the frameworks branch to become master already today.
