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 .
