Hey, is there any guidance on a) when 1.0 will be released, and b) whether 1.0-RC1 is an RC in the sense of "no more changes barring major issues" or is more like a public beta? Also, what is the general level of stability of 1.0-RC1? I'm considering prototyping a port of some critical applications from Scalaz, but I don't want to do this until the APIs and behaviors are unlikely to change, and the code is stable enough that I can trust that any bugs are on my side.

RC1 is pretty stable. I think there are two binary changes between RC1 and proposed release.

any API changes, or just binary changes? I'm not terribly concerned about binary compatibility for this prototype
also, are there any projections on roughly when 1.0 might be final? (yes, I know there are never guarantees in software—I'm just looking for a best guess whether it's days, weeks, months, etc)

TYVM @goedelsoup & @tpolecat, this is very useful
(I know "when?" is no developer's favorite question)

I think we’ll do an RC2 today and then 1.0 7 days from now
We’re 1 PR review short (:

Are you thinking addressing #2093 after RC2? I think there are some quick fixes we can squeeze in. I won't be able to get to them until tonight.
We will focus on the bin compat breaking ones
