Hi Jiajia,

this is all good news !

However, I would suggest strongly that for the next iteration of Kerby
(ie, 2.0 or whatever fits your need), you stop using RC when you add
features in the project. There is nothing wrong in releasing many
incremental versions (1.0, 2.0, 3.0..., à la Firefox/Chrome), even if
it's every few months. OTOH, cutting 3 RCs with added features is
conveying a mixed messages to users.

I'm not asking Kerby people to stop doing so know, the train is already
on its way, I'm just suggesting a different approach in the near future :-)

Many thanks and keep going the good work !
