Hello everyone,

it is almost a year now since I released ZQuest 1.0.0 beta 1 (October 
2000), but the project is not dead (since I still try to graduate <grin>). 
In the last two weeks I updated zQuest to the latest, just released, 
DBObjects version. I also implemented the last missing features and started 
moving towards a stable version.
But enough said. Since it would be too long to list all features in this 
mail, I would like to point you to these URLs:

zQuest Installation Instructions and Download: 

In case you get frustrated, since you do not know the API yet or all of 
this is confusing, then please be patient, the documentation is coming! (If 
you can't wait, just contact me. ;-) )

I also worked on a release plan. In order to be successful here, I would 
love to get some beta testers. You can either use the demo installation or 
download your own. I would need your help between September 10-23.
