See PS: from my response to jason's mail.

That still leaves the question whether to provide compatibility to 0.9.6 or
not (I wouldn't like to make it compatible because it involves much work that
is only valid for a few months and needs to be removed then...)

No idea about that ;) I can't really say what has improved and what not. I can
only rely on the comments from Markus and Thorston. I think I will really get
to know the source when we start to design the interfaces.

See above.

thank you.

I have read the ones through that were sent on the argo dev list during
December/January. They don't describe all changes, but ... as far as I can
remember there were a couple of things that make it impossible to keep
compatibility (and thus making it compatible for now WOULD be some work).

I also checked back with Markus on the whole gentleware thing so that I don't
do anything wrong. One important remark was that the gentleware branch only
exists in the /gef/src/ directory.


And thanks Bob for all your participation at least on the list. It already
DOES help if more people make considerations no matter how many are then
actually making the changes.

greetings,
Raphael
