I posted a short list of changes on the google groups:

I just released Cura 12.08. It's mainly a bugfix release, so no boasting many new features, it does have a few major changes under the hood.

* Memory usage has been greatly reduced for the User interface

* Loading of STL files is a lot faster

* Rotating models is faster

* Your model color can be customized in the preferences! (I should put this feature on the front cover of the boxed version)

* Made printing trough USB a bit more robust, as well as the automatic baudrate detection.

* Added a temperature graph, should show unstable temperatures if they happen. (does not get updated during printing)

* Added file binding to STL files under windows (can be disabled during install), just double click an STL file to open Cura

* Added a progress window to the "STL Cutter" in the project planner

* Raft now works with the project planner

* Project planner now has a "copy to SD" button

* Fixed a few minor issues.

Latest files can be found at:

I've also started on a project planner tutorial:

http://daid.github.com/Cura/?page=Project%20planner

It's not finished, as I ran out of memory (hence the memory optimizations in 12.08), but it should get you along if you haven't used the project planner yet. The final result does work with 12.08, as I printed it yesterday:

But I haven't updated the tutorial yet.

NOTE TO MAC USERS: You need to install "numpy" as extra library now. Should install the same way as "pyserial" with the command "sudo easy_install2.7 numpy"
