      The PDC build of Mantis will be released sometime this fall. There are a couple of clean up tasks I need to do plus get a hosting site up and running.  Hopefully sometime in early December.

      Also development of Mantis will continue and I will be posting interim builds as well.

      You can follow the development of Mantis via my blog at
