Happy New Year!
Qgis 0.8.0 has been released. Includes Xcode project to match. Requires new GDAL framework. I will probably not do SVN builds now, just updates to the release.
I quietly updated GDAL just after Xmas – 1.4 beta. Internal version bump, but 1.4 is basically backward compatible with 1.3. New software builds, such as the Qgis 0.8 above, will not work on older GDAL 1.3 frameworks. But older software should continue to work with GDAL 1.4.
