This release carries several minor improvements to various small parts of the system.

We can now manage the groups of providers in the booking system via a handy user interface and several improvements were made to our import system.

Excellent progress was also made in terms of the user interfaces on the booking system, with new screens to allow the creation and editing of extras and discounts now available for use by host managers (it's still beta so not released to all providers just yet!).

That said, this release has carried with it three major development discussions, one with Haymarket, one with Rental Reserve and one internally. Many decisions have been taken about the development direction and new goals and aims have been established. Work is now underway to convert more code over to Zend Framework and we have several big developments coming up.

Primary changes in the next couple releases will include a new database layer utilising the constructs of the Zend Framework, a revamped users system which will see the dropping of the "User pools" concept (although some paradigms will still remain), and some interesting improvements for the booking and directory integration.

So while this time it was all talk, next time it'll be all action!
