I've just released F-Spot 0.7.2. This release contains a ton of
stability improvements and is the last release before the long-term
stable 0.8 release which will come in a week.

The most important change is one for developers: you can now use
Monodevelop to work on F-Spot. Get your hacking shoes on!
