Yes, totally!  We have gotten behind on the releases, but have been 
ramping back up.  I'd also love to get back onto shorter release cycles, 
with more rapid responses to bugs, with a longer trajectory of new 
features.  Currently, we hope to get the next release of ChucK and 
miniAudicle out, hopefully in the next few days.

Thanks again all for your input and enthusiasm!
