Re: status of 0.8?
So I am excited that 0.8 is getting close.

I understand that 0.8 is pre-beta, but to what extent would you say the bugs are mostly with the new redundancy code vs regressions in existing functionality;  i.e. if wanting to prototype and deploy something over the next month or so with the view to deploying it within the next two months, is it safe-ish to go with 0.8 with replicated brokers turned off (for now) vs going with 0.7.2?

Also does anyone know the status of any node.js clients for 0.8
