So yeah, this was a business decision (out of my hands) and not related to
anything in the community. In fact I must thank everyone
that has helped out with reviews and encouragement along the way.

Sorry that it will be not continued, I have really enjoyed working on
it. For me personally I'll be working on Murano and Heat from now on.
