Hello everyone,

I've discovered dia today, have used version 0.88.1 for
several hours today and am quite impressed. :)

I'm quite surprised by the lack of updates on the web site,
though. When I first came to it and saw the date of last
news item, I thought dia was yet another unfinished, dead
project. I also noticed the past updates had been slow to
come though, but the project had kept on going, so I gave
it a try and looked at the mailing list archives, too, and
discovered it was still alive and kicking!

So, what is the current state of dia? Can anybody answer
the following:

* Has any significant feature been implemented since
  version 0.88.1?

* Is the CVS stable, at least as much as 0.88.1?

* Is there something resembling the Mozilla Milestones
  available? More recent than 0.88.1, but more stable
  than bloody edge?

* If one of the answers to the questions above is
  "use CVS", would you be gentle enough to post the
  commands needed to get a usable tree? I'm sorry, I
  know I need to learn cvs someday, but I really don't
  have time right now.

Thank you!

I must agree on all this, e.g. I was also quite impressed :). I can't use CVS (also have to learn it some day). I personally think that a lot of people come to the dia-website but when they see the "old" news items then I think they leave dia for what it is and try to look for another program. Too bad, because I really think dia has a bright future.

So if the CVS version would be stable, plz plz plz bring out another official release, plz? If possible, a windows port would be great too (personally I use linux, but I've convinced some windows-friends of using dia too!). If the CVS version just wouldn't be stalble enough, than maybe you could post a message on the dia website that dia is alive and kickin'?

hoping to see the dia website change ;-)
