The biggest disadvantage to people actually using your software is that
they find bugs, this one's a doozy because it looks like it affects
older 0.3 releases as well.  Now seems as good a time as any to repeat
my recommendation that distributions, mobile and embedded appliance
developers using Upstart consider using 0.6 in their next release rather
than sticking with 0.3

I've also today created the 0.6 stable branch in bzr, those following
stable releases with bzr will want to update their trees to
lp:~scott/upstart/0.6.  New stable releases will be made off this branch
while trunk receives more exciting developments.

0.6.3  2009-08-02  "Our last, best hope for peace"

	* Fixed an assertion when a job's main process is terminated
	  while in the stopping state.  (Bug: #406408)

	* Fixed compilation on ia64.

	* nih-dbus-tool(1) manpage will not be installed, since the binary
	  is not.  (Bug: #403103)

The tarball can be found here:
