Nice to hear your exciting news. I have seen at some point there was long
discussions between Fernando, Evan, and Brian, but wasn't sure these for
merely tinkering purposes or actually supported work.

I don't remember seeing Omar or Gerardo's blogs aggregated in Python or
Scipy planets. It would be nice to see them shared there if the work is
still on going. Likewise I would love to see one of you doing a sneak-peak
type of blogging, and sharing your updates in more practical manner with the
public. At least for me, it sometimes get harder to see what are the new
functionalities and what are the actual benefits from following the
dev-mails. With a few screenshot and a few short sentences would be helpful
for many to adapt their work settings and see what's on the horizon easily.

Specifically, I would like to know if there is a working prototype for the
Qt frontend + IPython work around to work with?

Thanks again,

Please keep up good work.
