Hopefully someone with knowledge will eventually reply, but in the meantime I'll point out more optimistic interpretations:
- The last time Stef went very quiet, he working on a major update that included making Renaissance available for the previews. His silence now might be an indication that he is tackling one of the major improvements that he has identified in the past as being desirable.
This reminds me of those A Song of Ice and Fire fans who interpret George R.R. Martin's silence/mood/travel itinerary as a sign that the book(s) will be done soon.[/list]
