    4558== Bugs & Features ==
    46 Lucide is not yet a finished product, some features are missing and some are not fully tested yet. If you encounter any bugs you are welcome to register it as a new [http://svn.netlabs.org/lucide/newticket ticket]. Please make sure you check the list of open tickets first to see if the bug was already registered once.
    47 Also try to assign it to the correct component, it is quite easy to do with TRAC.[[BR]]
    48 We review the tickets regulary and leave comments if we need more info. So please revisit the [http://svn.netlabs.org/lucide/report/11 Feedback analysis] as often as possible. If we leave comment and don't get feedback from the ticket creator, we will close the ticket after some weeks.   
     59Lucide remains a work in progress, with some features still to be added and some long-standing issues to be addressed. If you encounter an issue or have an enhancement request, you are welcome to register it as a new [http://svn.netlabs.org/lucide/newticket ticket]. Please make sure you check the list of open tickets first, to see if your issue may have already been reported.
     60Also, try to assign it to the correct component of the program; this is quite easy to do with TRAC.

     62We will do our best to review tickets regularly and will leave comments if we need more info. Please revisit the [http://svn.netlabs.org/lucide/report/11 Feedback analysis] for overall status updates.

    5567== Developers ==
    56 Lucide is now complete open source software, so feel free to take a look at it or even contribute.
     68We are currently seeking interested developers to take Lucide to the next level, adding features like tabbed viewing, more flexible print layouts, context-sensitive help, more intuitive user interface, and better rendering performance.

    5871=== Plugin API ===
    59 The plugin API is using SOM, this allows programmers to write their own plugin without the need of recompiling it every time a new Lucide release is done. It's up to the developer to decide if the plugin he/she writes will be open source or not, Lucide will work with both type of plugins.
     72The plugin API uses SOM. This allows programmers to write their own plugins without the need to recompile them every time a new Lucide release is done. It's up to the developer to decide if the plugin he/she writes will be open source or not; Lucide, due to its being dual-licensed, will work with both type of plugins.
