After far too long, we finally got the current trunk to a state where we were happy to release. Unlike the previous stable releases, we decided that this one was worth a bigger splash, and announced it on the VTES newsgroup.
As such releases go, that seems to have been a success, and I've spent the last couple of days obsessively watching the sourceforge downloads counter tick up.
The increasing number of downloads, however, has not been accompanying by any comparable flood of queries or requests. As a measure of validation that people are using out work, this leaves a fair bit to be desired. Typical, really. Users are never around when you want them, and often there to complain when you don't.
