I started playing AD&D with a Sorcerer character, and that's what drove my
choices for features, etc. That's why some stuff isn't there, like
memorized spell tracking, and other non-sorcerer stuff.
Recently, that campaign ended, and now I'm playing Shadowrun. So, the
likelyhood of any further development in the near future is pretty slim.
However, I will still try to fix any bugs that crop up. The code seems
pretty stable though.

is involved. Since I'm not actively using the program right now, I have
little incentive to work on it. I don't want to completely abandon it, or
it's users though, so I would be willing to send the source code to anyone
that would like to work with it.
And it's also entirely possible that I will get back into active
development if I start playing AD&D again.

- I would really like to work on the Project. I think I msg this before
but now that you mention it I would really like to. Ill wait for your
answer. Take care.

- It is good to hear that you haven't completely abandoned the
project. I should be able to handle most of the changes made by the
revision in the xml template, but it's not a sure thing. With that
in mind, I would be very interested in obtaining the source code
when you decide to make it available. Thanks for the reply!
