Regarding the BJCP updates - I have been asked by the BJCP not to publish the new style guide until the BJCP goes final. I don't know when BJCP will publish the final version but I'm hoping to have the update out shortly after that.
Regarding updates to the desktop version, I'm programming again now. I just finished some HD screen support fixes (released in beta) for Windows and I have a pretty substantial list of items I would like to fix and add in the next desktop update. I would prefer to wait before publishing them as I'm not sure at this point exactly how many will make it in. At the moment I'm focusing on some known bugs first, but will be adding new features as well.
A few areas of focus include adding some mash pH tools, improving the inventory handling, and adding more cloud synch features.
