This is all good news. (And more feedback on code quality is always
I think what I'd like to do is release 0.09 soon -- just one more thing
to tidy up. However, this won't include the two new ports.
* Solaris will be distributed as a source patch, for people to try.
* Native Win32 will be as a contributed binary.
After 0.09 is done, the first thing will be to integrate the two ports,
and then move development forward. 0.09 is more of a maintenance
release than anything else. (Oh for the time to spend a few weeks doing
some serious development on new features.)
My thanks to Nick and Martin for their hard work on getting it working
on strange platforms!
