TIMESCALE and Release Estimate

As you can see above, there is a huge amount of coding and modelling In v0.90 and we apologize it’s taking us a lot longer than first estimated. We want to make sure that the promised Update is complete and thoroughly tested before release so it’s going to take a few more weeks until completion…
We will try and post further updates as possible but if we appear quiet then that’s a good thing as we are busy with all the updates listed above. I can most certainly promise that you will have this update well before the end of the year!

V0.90 will be our biggest Update so far and of course brings us a lot closer to V1.0 so please be patient, it will be worth it ..
