I got scared when I saw your 2nd commit on this new feature: "Make script more robust" - it's totally new code, widely untested and definitly not robust. I and many other people want the release to be out (since months). Setting a better homepage (which will be changed by most if not all people anyway) is nothing we need *now*. > I believe the announcement and PR part need more work, as we really > should put some effort in writing press releases, talk to journalists, > prepare videos documenting new feature, update the documentation to > explain how to use the new features etc. Yes. Introducing yet more changes will also distract us from this work. > This is both to make sure we > get as much press coverage as possible to make schools aware of the > new version, but also to make sure the schools that do test the new > version are not disappointed when they get confused and are unable to > figure out how to do what they want to do. Yes. The documentation still has a lot of areas which should be improved. We had 12 months to add new features, there is a point in time when this has to be stopped so we can concentrate 100% on getting the thing out. I think this time has definitly come. regards, Holger
