0.8.0, then-latest. Current latest is 0.8.1.

Yes but there is limited time to experiment. I will give it a try for sure 
sometimes.

You are right. All I want is not to forget about the underlying problem. 
Non-technical people, for whom the flyer is meant for, tend to disregard FOSS 
philosophy. For them, usually whatever works is good enough. IME of course.

Slightly OT but along the same lines. An example I encountered yesterday. I 
couldn't convince a non-technical person that spam emails are bad. He just 
didn't have any problems whatsoever with it. :(
