Folks -

As many of you will have noticed, we have moved most of our activity 
to a Trac-based Wiki and SVN repository.

The upside of this is that if you want to run our very latest code 
all you have to do is click on...


This will throw several errors with huge notifiers on the screen, but 
you just click OK and they go away.  The notifiers are a result of 
not having proxies for some off-site web references, and we haven't 
taken the time to tone down them down yet.

This will give you a taste of what's to come in 0.9 or whatever we 
call this release we're planning to do in December.  You will find 
lots of stuff that we can talk about in the coming little while:  A 
bit of Fabrik, a bit of Tile Scripting, a bit of Pie menus, and a bit 
more spiffiness like gradients, drop shadows in the hand, animated 
window collapse, etc.

Also, at that same URL (http://livelykernel.sunlabs.com/), you can 
get to the sources, read the history and  updates as they come along, 
and maybe even find some documentation.

Naturally, we plan to make all of this beautiful and well-documented, 
but we keep finding more urgent or more entertaining things to do 
:-(.  That's where you come in.  Needless to say, we're always 
interested in contributions to our appearance, documentation and 
code.  Now that you have better access, perhaps you'll get sucked 
into some of this fun.

	- Dan, as scribe

PS:  Those comments about the name in my earlier message.  I didn't 
really mean them.  I've spent too much time with the trademark 
lawyers already.  I just mean we *think* of it as "Lively".  You knew
