I am pleased to announce that I finally got the courage to release the final version of NimbleX 2008! It seems that I felt 2008RC was not close enough to release 2008 final as soon as I planed but I hope in the end it was all for the best.
2008-03-24 00:00:00.0 NimbleX 2008 RC is available    View
Since Beta there are major differences and it's the closest thing I can imagine to final version. Actually the main reason for calling it RC is the eventuality some important bug sneaked in.
