Re: GRAMPS 1.0.0 officially released

I just wanted to take a second to thank Don and the entire GRAMPS team for a 
truly exceptional piece of software.  I have been using GRAMPS for years now 
and even back in version 0.2.0 when I first downloaded it was very stable.  
Now with SO many new features GRAMPS to me is the very best open source 
program that I have ever used - truly.  I can not even count how many times I 
have received answers to questions and even code patches with in minutes or 
hours of posting the problem!!  Thank you!!

Congratulations on 1.0.0!!!
