Hi Guys,
    I'm back (again) and just wondering how things are going with the 
Vista related
problems (black background etc) - just need to know if I should wait for
a fix or still settle for using Raisin.
Regards,
      Roger L

Hey Roger-

Basically, here's the deal: I had to take a day job for a few months to pay
some bills, and so Shoes dev has slowed down quite a bit. The task I've
currently been working on is upgrading all of our dependencies, because Ruby
1.9.1 is the root of the crashing problem on Windows. Next after that is
addressing the black background thing, because that sucks too.

So, stick with Rasins for now, as much as it pains me, just know that 1)
it's still being worked on, I'm just basically the only person working on
Red Shoes at the moment and 2) After August, I'll be taking six months off
of work to just work on Shoes, so it _will_ get fixed.

-Steve

Hi Steve,
      Thanks for the quick response! I ( and I'm sure lots of others) 
appreciate the time and effort put in to this project by yourself and 
the others involved. It's brilliant now and will be even better!
