On various forums, when I asked some question, I have got more and more answer like that: "you can do this with the development version of QGis 1.9... but you can't with the current version..."
It is quite frustrating! Why QGis don't do like some other opensource software, propose the both version on their website (the current and the development one with a message which inform that it is not a stable version)? I know that I can found this development version, but I find it quite a shame to have to looking for this version and not to find it on the main website, especially for software that tries to be very friendly user.
User of several opensource software's, I find it quite a shame.
Just to share my point of view, don't worry, I'm not angry against QGIS, which I find excellent, it's just a reaction to the answers on many forums that refer to this version.
