 ### Releases ###
 No new releases.
 ### Activity ###
-Development has stalled waiting for the 1.0 release of the Apache Commons
-Weaver component, which is stuck in the interminable rock-fetch known as
-the Commons release process.
+Development has proceeded at what can charitably be termed a crawl for the past
+year while BVal's team have been expending their volunteer energies elsewhere.
+A large obstacle has just been removed, however, in the form of the Apache
+Commons Weaver component, which has just seen its 1.0 release. This project had
+been one of the aforementioned time/energy sinks and was developed for the
+express purpose of solving one of BVal's long-standing design problems; speaking
+on behalf of the PMC I am hopeful that we can now resume a respectable
+development velocity and finally make our 1.0 and 1.1 (implementing,
+respectively, the same versions of the Java Bean Validation specification)
+releases in the near future.
 ### Community  ###
-No changes in community.
+No changes in community. Romain Manni-Bucau was added to the PMC during the
+previous quarter after having been elected a committer the quarter before that.
 ### Branding ###
 Nothing to report.
