There was never a point where it was really 'unstable' as I make sure that it passes a set of basic tests before every release anyway - when things did creep in I released as soon as it was fixed. All the functionality that worked before continued to work - only those using the new features were affected, and new users tend not to do that. I was aiming to be back to a nicely tested level of stability by the new year and have achieved that I think - plus I've cleared a few of the wishlist requests that people have asked about. Tony
