Definitely think it’s time.

Beyond a couple of nice PRs that haven’t been verified yet (thinking of agent forwarding specifically) it’s in good shape and people are wanting an official release.

A co-worker of mine will be looking at the agent forwarding code soon and I have ETM and ChaChaPoly 20 code to submit back to the project when time allows. Perhaps the next release could come quicker than 2 years. :-)
