Upcoming pre-alphas

The purpose of the current series of pre-alpha releases is to simply prove the concept of a Visual Shell and to attract more developers. Features that can be expected in later releases include:

Alpha versions onwards

Plans for actual alpha releases are pretty sketchy at the moment. The entire code base will be rewritten from scratch. Exactly how much more sophisticated the Visual Shell will be after this depends strongly on how many (if any) other developers join this project.

At this point submitting the Visual Shell for Linux Journal's "Fresh from the labs" column may be a good idea.
