The website looks great. +1
I do have a little bit of worry along the lines of Stephen's: the gaps can
be a bit annoying/confusing if you are viewing the page on a smaller
screen. For example, I first looked at the new page on my phone, and it
looked like a terrible waste of space if I were just to scroll through it.
Then again, if someone is seriously considering using this piece of
software they probably aren't viewing the webpage on a mobile device... Not
sure what can be done about this outside of moving to separate pages. It's
only a minor quibble, so probably not worth the trouble.

Okay -- let's plan on not having a release before the end of
I get a chance before I leave I will work a bit on
I'd like to take Cameron up on his offer of writing some docs
Reason and if he and Casey want to coordinate on a screencast
to use Reason (in the neighborhood of 30-90 seconds) that
awesome. I've filled out tickets for these items:
And as a reminder, the open tickets for 2.2 are listed here --
feel free to comment or add more information. Anyone who has
privs to the repo can update and modify existing tickets, and
can fill out new tickets.
For the website, sounds like it's getting thumbs up, so I'm
put it up on the front page sometime before I leave, maybe
today. Speak now or forever ...?
