Our original grant money (thank you STFC) has run out, which is why we are fund-raising. It will take a fair bit more work to make a final stable release version of the software with all the features we want. However, we do intend to sometime soon to release a "user beware" trial version, and do a trial show run, so we can get some feedback from punters. Then the blog will especially useful we hope, and we will also set up a discussion forum.
When we do, treat us gently!
