Hey guys. Many of you know I've been stranded in Italy after being
refused entrance back into the UK after attending a short conference in
Pisa on March 10. I've finally received the response from the UK
Embassy in Rome to my visa application: "Refused". So, I have a flight
home from Rome to Phoenix booked for tomorrow morning with a layover in
New York Friday night.

direction) in 1.7.x. Filters could still be improved to better handle
I would like to add the <div x-preverse> support before release (DM
knows what I'm talking about).
But other than what is mentioned in this email, I'm not aware of any
Please speak up. When I arrive home this weekend, I hope to get things
wrapped up and a release out in time for the BPBible team to release
their app early next week.
