The goal of this sprint is to release a lot of things that are "almost done".
1.9 beta was release almost a month ago, fix anything reported from that.
The Atlas module has a few tweaks needed before its ready to go live.
The Smart Container module has only a few tickets to complete and needs to be packaged, released, and announced.
The Rest Web Services module has some bugs found in the alpha release. These need to be squashed and the module needs to be released.
