I started with the subversion copy, but reverted to the current stable as time was running out and I really just needed to get something working. This is helping me get familiar with the software so probably works better for me now, rather than having to hack away to get the bleeding edge version working. I'm very proficient with Perl, have a web designer that works for me, and a girl that is doing the LedgerSMB data input (novice user). This puts me in a good position to fix bugs/add features myself, get UI improvements done and understand the needs of novice users who are currently finding the software really quite confusing.

But in addition I would like to see what the community thinks.  What
do you think we need to do to pull things back together and bring the
project to the next level?

Regular releases are a good thing, otherwise you quickly get into a position where a release gets delayed again and again for changes.

I'm working on a new extensible framework in Perl which would be well suited to this project. Unfortunately I'm limited in how much I can release atm as I plan for it to be the basis of my Phd when I complete my current MSc. Hopefully in the next year or so I'll be in a position where I can put more out.
