After a few days with a lot of discussion and sometimes harsh words the project is very active right now.
What has happened? After a rather unfruitful discussion about licensing and copyright issues one of the project member left the team, removing all his code from CVS. This led to another discussion about future work during which a few people showed their commitment stronger than ever.
Meanwhile the removed code has been put back into CVS and a fresh release will happen as soon as possible. Afterwards parts of the code that had been removed will be rewritten, others will be maintained further.
A warm welcome to the new team members and thanks to everyone who showed their support the last days! All in all it seems as if we are heading into the right direction now...
