You can choose your reward level in the comment, and from 15 euros you'll get your stretch goal voting rights, of course!

Talking about stretch goals... Michael Abrahams surprised us all by submitting a patch on reviewboard that implemented most of the selection tools improvement stretch goal!

We've been busy working on fixing other issues as well:

Unfortunately, all this has left our codebase in a slightly unstable state...  We tried to make new builds, but they just aren't good enough yet to share! Working on that, though, and hopefully we'll get there by Wednesday!
