Hi,

That is a good question. As you may already have seen we're collecting a lot of bugfixes in the roadmap and eventually roll them into 1.0.1. When that will be is a little hard to predict. Currently there are some infrastructure problems which have to be sorted first. Then there's an assessment to be made of the open bugs to see which have to be sorted out before 1.0.1. And then again, she's only two and a half months old. We might give it some more time.
But in the end it's up the our Fearless Leader to make the call.
A new release would get the new version of libsmi into the Windows
installer, which would stop Wireshark crashing on MIBs containing
implicit objects.

And also clear the path to removing the known memory leak becase
smiFree() is now available on Windows.

.... and about 50 other issues for which fixes are lined up. The maintenance 
release is going to be worth while, for sure.
Thanx,
Jaap
