Bennu is not dead, just asleep...

This seems like high time to make at least a minor update to the project page, for the sake of people who have been or will be interested in Bennu.

As anyone can see, the project has been on ice for almost a year now (after a brief period of activity at startup time). This has _not_ happened because I forgot about it, or got bored with it, or don't need a library such as Bennu anymore.

The reason behind the lapse is simply that I 've been recruited in the armed forces of my home country (much as I don't like it, we do have conscription here) and therefore cannot get any time at all to work on pet projects like Bennu. Even though I 'd very much like to.

I will be discharged from the ranks in early 2007. When that happens, it will be very nice to find out that people are still browsing these pages. And downloading Bennu. Who knows, even using it! I definitely will be! ;-)
