Today, an odd message appeared on the emerald log in screen, thus:-
MOTD: We are now going to force a release that doesn’t work upon everyone. Enjoy being naked.
This is inaccurate and disruptive, and simply reflects the mood of a former dev on the team. This dev has now left, and the message removed.
As with any team, the Emerald dev team consists of a wide range of very diverse people. All are dedicated to seeing the best viewer possible presented to you, the user. Once in a while, team members leave for a range of reasons. It is rare for a tantrum to accompany their departure, however there is as you can see, a first time for everything.
A pleasant consequence of this is the return of a key member of the team, so you may look forward to a vibrant, productive and creative team once again.
A new Release Candidate will be available very soon, likely tomorrow SL Monday. Please be assured the Emerald Team is alive and thriving, and will continue in this way.
