thanks for the update and explanation.
I can't wait to see the finalized version becoming available!
FYI: I had planned to buy two copies, one for my own shelf and another one
to pass on to some students who are likely to be working on a Sugar activity
as part of a university course this next semester:-)
In any case, thanks a lot for all your hard work on this project, I can't
even begin to thank you for how useful it is.
