We're on a new server, with a new host. This resulted in some disagreements.

I... Listen, the CFile parser -- and the others, really -- are approaching a stage where they can be released, even without being 100% complete.

Would everyone like an early preview, if I can make one by the ninth?

With some gearing, the preview could have an updater. So there'd be no more wait for R4; You could just download updates.

With at least semi-regular updates and, this is important, a proper changelog, that sounds like a good plan.

This. But I don't care how loosely the "semi-regular" part is enforced...

More than one per year would be nice.

Yes, the ninth.  I was actually about to ask you.

I may have to make some bogus rule that qualifies the actual release date as the ninth, at this rate.
Had a lab today, got swamped. -.-

As for change logs, I'm allergic. Each update will have its own changelog, but I'm not making any effort outside of that ^_^

That's what I meant. My least favourite thing about new versions of any app (for example, the Ubuntu betas) is that they don't tell you what's changed. How can I test it or have an opinion on it if I don't know that?

Updates will probably be largely bug fixes, though. Meaning that it'll be known that the changes work, the rest is what's left to figure out.
But yes, it helps to know what's changed beyond the filename.
