Great work @billbutler, you guys have been working really hard on the UI recently, I've had several issues immediately resolved on the ui repo recently thanks to your worker proposal.

Keep up the great work :)


Oh, the joy of releasing new software, and the glorious anticlimax that follows weeks of grueling and thankless work.

A special congratulation is in order. Sleep in. Eat pancakes. And then get back to work.

Pancakes, check.

thank you guys for your hard work

When it comes to programming, there's more that goes on behind the scenes than meets the eye. Congratulations to all working on this awesome piece of technology.

you send me one of the first drafts for the worker proposal months ago, and I told you to go for it and you did it. The community accepted the proposal and now we have the first results. Really cool. thanks.
