The only thing that happened, as far as I know, in terms of
official was that Walter announced it to be the official GUI
and it got its own dedicated newsgroup. It's not on the web
site, there's been no coordinated releases, no contribution
from the core team, nothing. I don't see how anyone could
expect progress to increase at all.
My point exactly. Simply naming something official does not
improve it's status or send contributors clamoring to assist in
its improvement. It takes a deliberate effort and dedication of
resources to accomplish that.
