Dear Community,

During this iteration we had many valuable contributions. It's a joy
to see how McCLIM gains more mindshare and people are willing to put
their time and wallet in fixing issues and writing applications in
McCLIM.

**Some highlights for this iteration**:

- many Listener fixes,
- major tab layout extension refactor,
- new extension for Bezier curves (based on older internal implementation),
- interactor improvements,
- layout improvements,
- fixes for redisplay and transformations,
- documentation cleanups,
- cleanup of the issues (closed the obsolete and fixed ones).

Suggestions as to which other issues should have a bounty on them are
appreciated and welcome. Please note that Bountysource has a
functionality "Suggest an Issue" which may be found on
the [bounties](https://www.bountysource.com/teams/mcclim/bounties)
page. If you feel that you may solve some problem, but there is no
bounty on it, feel free to suggest it too.

If you have any questions, doubts or suggestions – please contact me
either by email (daniel@turtleware.eu) or on IRC (my nick is
`jackdaniel`).

Sincerely yours,  
Daniel Kochmański
