[Pythonmac-SIG] State of DrawBot, missing features

Could someone, please, provide insight into the current state of
DrawBot , a nice interactive graphics programming environment,
originally written by Just van Rossum? I asked Just via private
email some weeks ago, but either he's busy or his reply hasn't
made it through my spam-filter.
The website mentions an upcoming release 2.0 and the current pages
describe features which I cannot reproduce in version 0.91a avail-
able for download. Among these are all text-related commands shown
on the respective reference webpage . I screened the available
source code and could not find any code implementing these features.
I'm aware of Bob Ippolito's beefed-up version  of DrawBot, but it
shows the same effects concerning these commands and Frederik Lundh
seems to have abandoned his efforts to port DrawBot to Windows 
due to its "overforking disease."
So I wonder what is the current state of the art? At least it would
be nice to be able to use features as advertised on the webpages.
