Some new things: Well, we're now using activeCollab as our main project management tool. It's much easier and less confusing to use than SourceForget.net , and it helps us keep track of everything that's going on. I've even changed the "Project Page" link to point to our activeCollab instance. If you'd like to check out what's happening, log in with username/password guest/guest. You should be able to view everything.
Some old things: Progress on beta 6 is good. We've actually introduced a few new things in it that we decided couldn't wait, and would need to be in 1.0 final in any case to make it a decent software release.
That's all from my side for now.
