Thank you for your encouragement very much, Ricardo! And I really really
appreciate your generous permission that I can put my name in the
copyright notices! I'll be very proud if my name can be listed in the
SIP website! Compared to your contribution to SIP, Mine is far smaller
than 1%:-) Thank you very very much!
Thank you for your bug report and feedback. I should have found
these bugs if I spent more time on testing. As for the TransMogrify Demo
crash, I guess it may be caused by some modifications to the source code
I made. And I'll to take a closer look at the help link issue. If I
can't fix it, I'll try to use the Linux SIP's help pages instead.
Moreover, I have a plan to add images in help files, which can make
whole help pages vivid, right?;-) But I know the most priority is to
make SIP stable on Windows.
Thank you for telling me how to use SourceForge.net's file release
system, I'll give it a try soon:-)
