Technical changes:
  * The usual bug fixing
  * HTML improvements; use <div> based layout instead of <table>
  * Update translations
  * Add German translation
  * General usability improvements
  * General look & feel improvements

 For example, after the usual testing, we have just committed today
 the patch which removes the need of JavaScript support at the browser.

Feature changes, (only if you agree):
  * Use microformats to allow webapp users to export their own resume.
  * Enable certifications support, which is now disabled.
    About certifications it would need a lot of talk about what
    certificate, etc., so this task is postponed.

Everything following the Free Software philosophy.  New versions will have the 
same spirit than the present one.  Let us know anything you think the project 
must change or desist from.

Detailed list of proposed improvements, features, etc. are and will follow 
being added at the Task Manager at Savannah:

It is at the home of one of our developers.  We suffer power instability. The 
host is being used as desktop too, so security and performance penalties.

Being hosted at the FSF the webapp users would be more confident that their 
data it in good hands.  Is there a better place to keep the personal data of 
Free Software contributors?

Additionally, maybe hosting it at your servers the project will get improved 
security at the system level. We take care of it at the application level.

Best regards,
The work team
