I am new to Python, in fact it is due to Boa that I am planning to use Python to create some shareware software.

I think you should change the status from Alpha to at least Beta.  Have not seen many commercial apps running as well as Boa does (although it is early days for me, so maybe I will find some problems).

As 0.5 is nearly a year old and as there is little/no news   on the news page I wonder what your plans for this very nice IDE are.

Again many thanks to everyone involved in the Boa project.
