Yes, I think it's about time that we cut a new release. Even something as minor as "1.70.1" would be good, because it would mean that the *many* fixes and improvements are accessible to package users. It might not even be a bad idea to cut a minor release every year or so on a schedule, because there's really not a lot of release engineering that has to be done. Right now the code seems stable and no massive changes are being planned. Is cutting a release feasible in the next week?
