Seems to hint there will be some devs removed and a few added? There are some users in the Dev group who has not even visited this board summer last year 8O

I've noticed that all the devs check the boards almost daily. You can easily tell who is active/inactive through the last visit time. Also the CVS stats give you an indication. :|

No need to look for hints. Acyd Burn said full information would be given later. He's simply explaining that the changes have played a part in the update process.

# Permission system
We know the permission system as of now is a bit too complex for productive usage, there are plans to reduce this complexity and introduce a more simple approach in setting permissions (mostly ACP related changes).
Will the complex version still be available?

As of yesterday it was, but who knows, we shall see ;)

I would guess the full power or permissions will still be available in some form in the ACP, but would also expect (from some previous comments made on here) to see ACP additions to easily set some simple "default" permission configurations, maybe some factory-default restore option, maybe copy-paste options, etc., but the core logic is there to support a variety of ACP additions to be layered on...

I like the power but have always felt the complexity will be a little cumbersome, but apparently the devs are now working some nice additional things for us to test in the not-too-distant future :)
