Ho ho ho,

I just wanted to say I hate it when release announcements are soo dry and 
dreary you almost fall to tears reading them... People could atleast _try_ 
and add some humour to them! It's not like it's _that_ much harder...

...oh, wait... that was _my_ announcement... then it must have been you saying 

Ooooh, now I'm confused, I hate being confused...

/Robert :)

I just loved the road map, the future's so bright we gotta wear shades!
