Hi Zhang,

I agree with you, it is really a maintenance release with just a few more
bits thrown in. Alex, the original author, was brilliant, but left the
application somewhat orphaned. To avoid confusion this scheme offers the
most transpaent transition for packagers and users.

Backbone's Terminal component is the original application -- Alex moved it there and switched it to team maintenance, just as I did with Preferences and TextEdit, and Nicolas Roard never got around to doing with HelpViewer. Being the main maintainer of Backbone right now, it seems pretty stupid to me for the original software to be called a fork while another modified version is claimed as the only successor.

It's particularly troublesome since you knew that I was working on new stuff for Backbone (including bug fixes and new features for Terminal) BEFORE you guys released your "0.9.5".

THAT is what is leaving a bad taste in my mouth, that you seem to be trying to hijack my project intentionally.
