The mentioned bug of 0.2.8 (and 0.2.10) can be found on upstream's tracker:
Although it can be fixed easily (see patch in the comments in the URL above),
I agree that 0.2.11 should be stabilized now.

Hi, is here any news? The library version 0.2.11 is in portage for a long time, and there is no blocking issues.
