A number of us are waiting with baited-breath for all the wonderful
features & improvements that you have tantalized us with that are
slated for Ver 4.0.
I was wondering whether it would be helpful to start-up a discussion
(moderated by you assuming you are interested) that would get some
user feedback on some of the planned features and methods of
I'm sure that some of the heavier users here would have some good
feedback and potentially even suggestions for improving the
implementation or getting around challenges you may be facing when
looking at all the code alone. Also, in case there are any issues,
conflicts, concerns, or major missing features, it might be good to
start soliciting such feedback before you have all the bells &
whistles hard coded.
Particularly with things like the new ACL functionality and a new
database approach, I imagine that there might be differing opinions
both on the scope and method of implementation. Personally, I think it
would be a shame if some choices are hard-coded in now that in the
future prove sub-optimal and could have been avoided had you had the
input earlier in the design process.
If you and others are interested in such a discussion and if it takes
off, we should of course move it solely to the development list. But I
thought I would float the idea here to get a sense of the level of interest.

Excellent & Thanks.
One question, do you have any *rough* ETA about when the next version
may be ready and stable for use?
The reason I ask is that there are various ideas I have been
considering implementing that would add robustness to v3.0 but that
would presumably be unnecessary in your 4.0 implementation.
