Hi all,

Sorry I didn't answer to the messages that evoke the tasking manager.
I'm not giving up with its development at all. I'm just having a hard
time finding time and energy to contribute as much as I would like to.
I hope I can get more free time to fix some issues and answer the
pending emails.
