some people may remember that I announced an effort to release 2.7 for
very early this year. This never happened, because I want my book to
be based on 2.7, and there were still changes I wanted to have in the
code to make writing the book easier.

I have made a lot of progress this year, and the list of things I would
need in the next release is actually quite short now:
* Additional binary operators for FieldVector and FieldMatrix, as decided upon
at the last meeting in Heidelberg
In dune-localfunctions: Cleanup/unification stuff
* ... and similar patches for prisms and pyramids (planned for this week)
As the book covers dune-pdelab I would also appreciate if there was a
release of that together with / not much after the rest of the modules.
The big issue here is
which is a major improvement but also big and invasive.
In addition, having
merged or closed before the release would be helpful.
Compared to what I used to have this list is really short. Therefore I think
that your schedule is good for me provided that the pdelab guys agree.
