As part of the course I am doing just now, there are a number of 
podcasts under way. So the question is by no means malplaced. I have not 
decided whether it is a complete recording or just minor parts. I tend 
to draw a lot on the blackboard, so it is very flexible and dynamic - 
and therefore depends a lot of the specific course. But obviously it can 
be recorded for general access - I will think about a technical solution.

I will tell more about that and add updated instruction materials in 
about a month, when the course is completed.

I am also sure that the course will reveal some details of "insufficient 
function" or need for minor adaptations. So even though we have released 
now 1.4.4.2 for general use it is still important that all users discuss 
on this list. The number of possible combinations of operation systems 
(windows, linux, mac) and the versions of each of these make for quite 
many possible bugs, that we have had no chance to capture in the 
in-house testing.

Jens Lauritsen
