Thanks everyone for all the feedback. I will certainly ask again in a couple of weeks.
These are the things I expect to realize this month:
* sending in-game messages to players
(mostly to get rid of the misery surrounding familiar cards)
* rated/unrated games (including a leaderboard and more feedback/options for matchmaking)
* smaller releases
Note that the list for 'hope' is a lot longer then 'expect', but I won't be satisfied if it isn't at least this by the end of the month. Also note that this is my personal wishlist, Philip probably has a couple of his own for the client.
About smaller releases... I know that the last release has been a while back now, but unfortunately that isn't because there will be huge improvements in the next. At least not improvements you will be able to notice. The irony is that this release has taken so long because we've been setting up automated deploy-on-commit on the testserver, mixed with some days off and sickness. In the meanwhile the German translation is as good as finished, and the Japanese are working on it.
