Subject: [oss4lib-discuss] Avanti Update & Request for Feedback

Now that Avanti MicroLCS 1.0 beta 1 is released, work continues toward
version 1.0 proper.  Other than completing what is unfinished, new
features are not being added right now.  Development work is focused on
taking what exists now and making it work correctly, completely, and
very well.

Documentation work also continues in parallel with development.  Such as
it is, it should improve rapidly.  Updates to the documentation will be
posted to the project website periodically.

At least two more beta versions will be released in the near future
before the true 1.0 is reached.  I am expecting a time frame of about
two or three months for this.

You can help!  In the past 10 days there have been over 100 downloads of
MicroLCS 1.0 beta 1.  I am very interested in any feedback from anyone
who has gotten the software up and running.  I would also like to hear
from those who have used the online demo.  Tell me what you think.  What
are your impressions?  What do you like about it?  What is lousy?  ANY
feedback, positive and negative, is valued, and will help me to make
this a better product.  Please drop me a line at schlumpf@nslsilus.org .
