Chahine announces an imminent pre-release of version 1.0.

At the packaging level, Chahine will integrate the creation of RPMs as a part of the chonfigure/make process with the help of Osama Alassiry. who volunteered for it.
Note that at this date, the new tarball is not available yet for download, but is on CVS.
