I just wanted to say a quick thank you for all the feedback I've received on the R10 release. I'd been looking at it as quite a small update, but people seem to be very happy about the incremental speedup and new features such as frameskip and so on. I found releasing R10 within 4-5 weeks of R9 was really hard work, but I'm now convinced that releasing smaller updates more regularly is the right way to go. I'll be following this post with some details about the plans for R11.
Finally, it turns out that this blog had over 40,000 visits over Sunday/Monday, which is incredible - thanks for continuing to read :)
