Kind of. Troy and I have some definitive plans what should happen and a
extremely vague time scale when to achieve that.

completing internationalisation frame work (last missing piece is
localised references)
improving installation and customisation (better than before, but
needsto be tidied up and concluded)
introducing greater session independence (it should be possible to have
two (or more) independent tabs running which do not influence each other)

We try and meet up this coming weekend and will see where we get to.

I can not say that I understand anything of what you say here, but that
is my fault and not yours I guess. Troy will know what you want to achieve.

Always. Welcome.
