It is unable to add layer form delimited text file. Points coordinates and values are not properly interpreted. For expale -- text file (see below) which was successfully imported in 0.7.4 is not possible to import in current svn version (fails also in WINDOWS preview2)

Content of simple text delimited file:

x y value
12 15 18
64 33 45
77 12 66

Works for me in latest svn. In what way doesn't it work for you?

1. Click "Add delimited text layer" - choose test.txt (attached below) as input file, space ( ) as delimiter, then click Parse and choose x fied as X coordinate and y field as Y coordinate and finally click Add layer button
2. On the canvas you can see only one point (not all three, which really exist -- see attached screenshot). Try "Full zoom" button -- it won't help. If you play little with Pan you can explore also two missing points.
3. Click "Attribute table" icon. As you can see the table is emty (see attached screenshot) althogh it wouldn't be.
Behaviour described above could be observed in (Linux) as well as in Preview2 (Windows), although it worked in 0.7.4 without these complications.

The problem with points that are exactly on the boundary not being displayed is fixed in svn eab31648 (SVN r5906)

Can you try this again with the latest svn version? I managed to duplicate the problem a few days ago, but it worked fine for me just now...
