    Damn – I lurk and keep an eye on this place as I liked the things I saw early on, but haven’t had the time to look in closely recently.

    I’d kind of assumed this Project had gone dead, due to no activity on the forums – no blog updates etc. This change Log is MASSIVE. Absolutely amazing to see the hardwork – but you’ll see more traffic if you do a weekly / monthly change log.
