I know that none of the major features initially planed for 3.2 are

months since 3.1, and 2) the devel branch already contains many new
cool and very useful features that, from my point of view, justify a
new release of Eigen.

I agree with preparing a 3.2 release now.

How confident are we about fixing the interface for the Ref<> class? It seems pretty solid, but it would be a shame if we discover in the run-up to 3.3 that the need to be backward compatible is holding us back somehow. Perhaps it's safer to declare the interface not completely fixed yet?

I started going slowly through the list of open bugs. There are still quite some left, though a lot are in fact enhancement requests.

What is the plan with all the bits for supporting the transition from Eigen2? While it's not much of a burden, at some point we should get rid of it.
