So, I haven't disappeared, just slowed down the pace a bit - I always knew that I wouldn't be able to keep the stream of instant responses and weekly updates going, so it's not unexpected.
With that said, I am still making progress on stabilizing the 0.4 branch. I've spent the past week or so writing schemas and validators. Said testing framework has helped to identify a great many problems (many of which were so far unreported becuase they were too small to notice). Oh god, it's a developing an integration testing suite. Run for your lives! >:D
It only has one new user-visible feature - the old spinner to set a girl's pay has been replaced with a slick new slider, with predefined points. No more checking back every couple of days to see if she wants more money now - girl's pay will rise/sink automatically as necessary.
The latest version is still not production-ready (likely about 10 days away from announcing it ready), but I've pushed it out regardless - it's a hell of a lot better than 0.4.0, so I've pushed it to production. What a mess.
