Hi all,

Sorry all for not replying for a while. I have made a notice on the Banksia GUI home page (on the Download page) and now I re-post here for being understood:

My wife has just been diagnosed with breast cancer. I have been with her to fight it thus I can’t focus on chess and BanksiaGUI at the moment even still being on/off. All issues, discussions, emails… will be replied/continued later. All supports are welcome and highly appreciated!

If I can't be back to work with BSG or postpone too long, I may release its code as an open-source (BTW, I have planed sooner or later I will publish its code) and ask the community to help to maintain it.

Thanks all for understanding!

Jesus, my heart goes out to you and her in the forthcoming grim battle. Please keep us apprised on occasion and know that you have a legion of well-wishers in that obscure anonymous fog that is the internet.

I hope everything will be OK, and that your wife will win her fight against this perfidious illness.

All the best and strength to your wife. I was in your position 13 years ago when my wife also suffered from breast cancer. Treatment took almost nine months but she recovered and got well again. And so will your wife.
Regards,
Andreas

I saw this news posted on your website and did not feel it was my place to share it here. I too wish your wife a speedy recovery and hope you are doing well in these difficult times.
