Sphinx 0.9.9 is finally released to General Availability. The previous version 0.9.9-rc2 was released back in April so there was quite a gap. This release fixes about 40 bugs which are mostly rare or insignificant. Fixing bugs in 0.9.9 was smaller portion of work done in Sphinx during last half a year – 0.9.9-rc2 was quite scale and in fact a lot of users were using 0.9.9-x branch instead of old 0.9.8 branch in production. Most of work was done on new features in 0.9.10 as well as live updates.
