Yes I noticed this almost 8 months ago, read a bit of the documentation
and articles published that time, regarded it as interesting and
considered it for future development. But since then absolutely nothing
happened. No project plan, no time-schedule, no subsequent releases.

No, I do not want to migrate components from a new major release
backwards, as well as I do not want to migrate applications from WinXP
to Win98. This seems to be the wrong development process direction.
