As I recall, an announcement was "terribly overdue" a month ago.

I know it would make ME feel better to hear ANYTHING.  Nevermind WHEN.

Is it technical issues?  Ownership issues?  Just yeay or nay on those two
questions would help me make some decisions of my own...

Not just plans. The whole thing is ready! Including the 1.1 compatible native
layer. Well, at least almost. But there are big changes - we go together with
kaffe, it's not BISS anymore (both BISS-AWT and myself). A general announcement
together with Tim is terribly overdue (since we need some support and
protagonists). I count the days until Tim is back and managed to organize
server space so that we can go out.

The idea isn't dead, it vivid more than ever. I'm as impatient as you are to
unveil our plans. Life would be easy if we just would have to deal with
technical issues.
