Is there a feature list for the current CVS? I don't recall seeing one.

Good to know. I still get the occasional crash.

Yes, but should it have to be? I thought this was a wish list. With that in mind, I'd like to ask 
that the drop caps function also include raised caps and outdented caps options. And the body 
text should wrap to the shape of the dropped letter. Hey, it's a wish list!

Yay! Go team! That alone is worth upgrading to 1.1.5. 
Here's my list, and I confess I haven't checked the wish list in so long I can't remember where 
it is, nor have I tried 1.1.5cvs. That said, here's what I still hope for. 
- Widow/orphan control 
- Spellczeck 
- Article-based (not frame-based) statistics, maybe even document statistics 
- A way to select all linked text 
- Drop shadows 
- 0.1-point as the *default* adjustment rate in linespacing and kerning (maybe a preference?) 
- Double-click to select a word, triple-click to select a line 
- Also, I notice that when I edit using the story editor, all my kerning goes away. This is a pain.
