Happy holidays! (+ some shoes4 thanks + ramblings)

Happy holidays! (+ some shoes4 thanks + ramblings)

Dear shoesers from all over the world,

I want to wish you happy holidays (whatever that means to you), a good
new year (soon) and a happy time with your family! =)

Also I want to thank all of you for contributing the shoes. Be it
reporting issues, providing feedback, help, encouragement, comments or
coding.

Personally I hoped that we'd be able to give you a little shoes4 alpha
as a Christmas gift. We tried but didn't make it. However things are
coming together nicely thanks to the hard work of many. So I want to
thank everyone once again :-)

I'm really positive about shoes4 - we are getting some of the last big
building blocks out of the way. Internal and external quality have
improved significantly. Personally I'm very happy about the improved
internal quality especially - often time when I write a little
application myself and find some missing piece or a little bug it's
easier to fix than I thought.

Also for me the shoes community kind of feels like it's always Christmas
- because of the extremely nice, helpful and giving community. Everyone:
stay that way! =)

These days I'm also already thinking about next Christmas... Next
Christmas I hope that some of you will be sitting at home with their
loved children and teach them a bit of programming with some sort of
shoes4 release (alpha, beta, release candidate... whatever). Because for
me that's one of the main reasons for shoes to exist: To teach children
to program, showing them that it's fun, far from black magic and to put
a smile on their face :-)

Enjoy your holidays everyone and shoes on!
Tobi
