Hey folks 🙂 Hope this post finds you all well. We have here a few more bios from our contributors, and are now more than halfway through them! We’re currently working on the layup, and getting the proof reading done. Things are still progressing well, and hopefully it won’t be long until we can give a more firm date on release.
