So I lied, bluffed all the way, so what? What you'd expect from this one self-called über-procrastinator ? And then there's hope. Alas, not the messiah, rather my development drive at my own pace. Believe it or not, it is on-going and it will sure happen real soon ;)
No sweat. The whole automation prophecy will be realized and delivered. Yes, TYOQA (The Year Of Qtractor Automation:) just failed, slipped a bit. It doesn't mean it was abandoned or, uh, procrastinated... well, it's only a Happy New Year after all :)
The road to automation is already being paved and walked although, I must say, it is no yellow-bricked one. The drive has begun. Definitely, 2011 will be TYOQA (aha, read that again with a bold tee:)! More than automation, which infrastructure is already lurking in there, trust me, all work is being carried out at the backyard for the time being.
Blossoms might just pop out this Spring ;)
One thing I may wish to leave sound and clear: it is very likely that, in the very near future, that there will be some dot-release before the all-mighty-one release, whatever. Now that the surprise-effect is gone, the long overdue and hailed beta release cycle that will present you and carve its deeds on stone with the dynamic-curves and automation features et al., will be nothing less nor before the coming version numbered as the 0.5.x scheme. Then, and only then, the current alpha-cycle will be concluded. Of course, that will be also the time for translations to be called in. Just be a little more patient :)
And then I lied a second time, when said those parodied F&D release code-names were exhausted. Thanks to a lengthy but intermittent Fall/Winter-of-coding period, I had the chance to wake up one morning with the imagination score in its lowest end and roar an inner WTH! As they say around here, there's no second without a third. So another lie is there waiting to be told. Or is it not? There, one would say: time will tell...
