Future plans: We are splitting up the NoteEdit development into a stable
and unstable tree. The current development focus will be on the stable
tree adding some interesting new features. The unstable tree will get
a stronger focus after the next stable relese. The plans for this tree
will be hopefully unleashed in the near future :-)

As always: If you have any problems or find bugs, please post them in
the Bug tracker. or mail them to the developer mailing list.
Known bugs can be found in the Bug tracker as well.
