If you are interested we invite you to join this project. Just post what you would like to help with in the Project Management Forum in the discussions tab. Even if you don’t see yourself working in the control code we need structured testers, help file and simple example developers. The less time the control developers spend in these areas the more cool tools and features we can develop.
