[13:02:33] <@rwr> Here we go!
[13:03:06] <@JackMayol> My name is Jack and I am working on the project since a bit more than one year, first as a ardent community member with providing textures, models and some fresh ideas to help pasik to push the game to its limits. Now I am an official part of the team since
[13:03:07] <@JackMayol> a few months.
[13:04:54] * @pasik (~pasik@pasik.users.quakenet.org) Quit (Ping timeout)

[13:07:43] <@rwr> Then, we'll start the Q and A session.
[13:08:33] <@rwr> Just to clarify, you are not alone in here. Almost everyone is hidden to avoid spam.

It's exciting. 0.8 is only 0.2 away from 1.0! It's scary to think I've been with this community for over a year, and official release is so close. :D

Well, not exactly. After 0.99 it's entirely possible they go to 0.100. Version numbering usually works more like Major_Version.Minor_Version.Bug_Fix, not decimal.
