We are just coming to the end of our "40 days and 40 nights" since the 
release when we try not to break anything by making changes - and while 
we work on finishing the book texts which is really what has kept us busy.

We will get on to this next week (the 40 days runs out on Monday 24th 
:-) and can give you an early version to try.
