".. But note the dates of the beta (only) versions mentioned on that page: 2.2.0b Copyright 2008 2.2.0b5 25 Dec 2007 2.2.0b12 10 Sept 09 And the page itself -- quite crudely done -- has hardly changed in all that time. Not an encouraging pace of development, for something that's going to have to be a very sophisticated piece of software to be successful. I monitored the page monthly for quite a while; eventually gave up on looking at it maybe a year ago.
