On the principle that "Release is a misnomer. Software is never released, it escapes." [1], it's probably time to release 2.5.0 so that we can at least start down that road. Shall we say feature freeze now, string freeze in July, 2.6 release 1 November?

Failing that, has anyone taken a shot at rewriting it with Cairo instead of libgnome? Note that I'm not proposing a Gtk3 migration for 2.6: We're doing that at Gramps, and MSWin is proving to be troublesome. In fact, it appears that no one is supporting Gtk3-MSWin at the moment.

There was another feature that briefly appeared on the trunk branch: 
dynamic graphical reports with jqplot. I wonder whatever happened with it.

The base for jqplot is in the code repo, and I also remember having seen 
some example reports using it. I can't find those anymore though.

I wonder if the original author was unsure to invest further in it 
because his jqplot work triggered a long discussion on where to go with 
the current report system. Lots of possibilities were offered, but in 
the end we're still using the report system basically unchanged. Since 
there's still no clear plan for the report system on the horizon, I 
would love to see jqplot being used for our graphical reports.

If the original author is still around, I'd love to hear from him (her?).

Other than that, anyone interested in looking into what's needed to 
convert a report to jqplot ?
