Thanks.

I'm currently pretty busy with getting the whole app to a Qt-only environment. There are some other issues/features in the pipeline that should follow next.

So any new bigger feature probably needs a helping hand. But why don't you propose anything (mockup or such)! I'll be happy to discuss.

Hi, thanks for the ping. I fixed some small issues arising from changes to cjklib-0.3 and uploaded a package to the PPA for lucid. I haven't tried it yet, so feedback is appreciated.
