Hi Aedan,

We are working on making the program more user friendly and I can 
understand  your confusion as the menu items do sometimes  differ from
conventions  found on the phone.  I guess we were just trying to get the 
thing ready willing and able first but we are now able to make other 
improvements  over time and it is very useful to have feedback from 
yourself and others so we can keep making this better and better.

I am working on an interactive feature request / bug tracking tool which 
will allow interested people to  submit and monitor features and bugs.  It 
should be ready soon.  A new release should be up within a couple of days 
as well!

Also, thanks for posting a beginners guide to the mailing list funnily 
enough a manual is currently being written and should be on the web site 

We really appreciate the efforts many of you are going to whether it is 
language translation, documentation writing, program porting or just 
belonging to the community and providing valuable feedback .

Thanks and best regards,
