There are still some features I forget what they were, but ISTR seeing one or two missing functions in one of the headers I worked on. > math, float parsing, and scanf code.

What I'd had in mind was to have _BSD_SOURCE ready "before 0.9.0" (when you were talking about having the license change). I haven't made much progress on it lately, and have been going through header by header (there are no patches I haven't sent left). If anyone wants to work on the other headers, they're welcome to do so. A header should take less than 3 hours to go over, from my experience. > Just looked back at the list archives and my original goals for 1.0, > and it seems we're nearly there, and already exceeding the goals in > some areas like application compatibility.
