first of all, I want to thank everyone for their feedback, contributions and
support for the XNap project. Working on the project during the last few
years has been fun and a great educational experience.
For me the time for my final leave from the project has come. I have been busy
doing other stuff lately and Yven and I have somewhat contrary opinions about
the future of the project and I certainly don't want to stay in the way.
I would like to point out that the generally useful components have been
collected in a new SourceForge project called XNap Commons which has released
a first version recently. I encourage everyone who wants to use features of
XNap like auto completion, Emacs keybindings, dialogs, a closeable tabbed
pane etc. to have a look at http://xnap-commons.sf.net/.
To cut a long story short: Since I haven't contributed anything for quite some
time, everything stays the same, and I am happy to say that Yven will
continue the project as the sole maintainer.

I just didn't wanna let the chance pass of saying a few words here.
Basically I just wanted to second what Steffen said and thank him for all the
work he put into XNap. He proved to be a diligent and responsible maintainer
and strongminded project leader with a clear vision of how things should be
and how they shouldn't be. Thus he was the driving force behind the two
redesigns of XNap.
I still reminisce about nightly hacking sessions, cardboard boxes of frozen
pizzas filled with our design drafts and long discussions, after we had
already left the pool ;-). We sure did have a fun time working on XNap and it
was a great experience in so many ways :-)
