Status & initial Release info

We've now got virtually all the 1.03 features working very well. You can load up a 1.03 preset and most of the time it will look as the author intended it to. The 1.04 features have been implemented and many 1.04 presets work fine, but others have some problems. There are many 1.04 bugs but we're quickly squashing them.

Look for a release soon. We've got to tighten up a few things, but we're almost there.... read more
