It took longer than I would have liked, but Twine 2.0.9pre1 is now available for download. As the "pre" implies, this is not a full release and isn't linked from the Twine home page-- this instead a chance for people who are interested in testing to help catch any last-minute bugs before a real release goes out.

In order to give this version a try, you'll need to take a trip to the Bitbucket project page and choose the appropriate file. twine.2.0.9pre1.zip is just the web version zipped for local use; you probably want one of the larger versions that are marked with a platform name. (If you are on Windows, try this page for instructions on whether you want the 32-bit or 64-bit version.)

Under the hood, the changes are bigger.

Those are pretty big changes, and I'll probably devote some words to why I made some of those decisions in the future. In the meantime, if you have general feedback on this version, please take a trip over to the Twine forums! If you notice a bug, please go ahead and report it at Bitbucket.
