Sounds all fine. You may want to use / update <http:// 
wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/HOWTO-Release> while doing that release  
process. In past projects, I found that not having a well-documented  
release plan was a major obstacle when the project grew and when new  
people suddenly had to make releases. So it would be nice if that  
document was relatively up-to-date.

Maybe we can also make a script that updates all files that contain  
the ScummVM version automatically. Something like
   ./update_versions.pl 0.42.1b
and it updates README, main.cpp, Info.plist, scummvm.rc, etc.. That'd  
ease the release process and would help ensure no files are  
forgotten :-)

Oh, and also it would be good if this time we had some relatively  
current daily snapshots for all (or at least all major) platforms  
available before the release to ensure that it actually is tested...  
it's a bit late for this now, but I'll try to put a current 0.8.x  
based OSX snapshot online. Last time some annoying platform specific  
bugs slipped into the release binaries because we didn't do proper  
testing on all platforms :-/
