Hi everone,

I hope this issue finds you well :-) This week ended up less heavy on horrible news, and more about interesting articles. It's a nice change!

I want to thank everyone who participated in the beta and/or provided feedback, it was super valuable. In the end there's not enough commercial interest to pursue it further, at least in its current form. I had a blast building it though, so no regrets at all! I'm not sure if I'll pivot it, maybe open source it, or just shelve it. We'll see :-)
