Unstable is to be released as 1.7.9-jumbo-8 (mostly for reference, it could be a pretty silent release) - or not released at all. It will definitely not be rebased. IMO we can release it as-is now (I'd just update CHANGES-jumbo.git with the last few changes). Personally I'm done testing it but I'll try to help with any issues found.

Since we are not exactly in a known-bugfree state anyway, I'd be happy to wait until your upcoming dynamic changes are in. Then it needs some systematical testing but I am not aware of any bugs that block a release. Issues I know about are here:
