    Hello everyone!

    It's been a long time since PatronusCharm has been in development, mostly due to a lack of time on my part. As PatronusCharm is a solo operation, as is maintenance on Dark Lord Potter, they've mostly fallen by the wayside due to tough coursework, but there is light at the end of the tunnel as I've restarted active development on PatronusCharm 1.1 Beta. I'm not sure when to say to expect it, other than soon. There is still much to do, much to fix, and tons to test. PatronusCharm Devsite mirroring will be done soon to allow for user participation in testing.

    1.1 Beta is an exciting new build which will bring a number of improvements, especially a completely revamped search system designed from the ground up to better support fic searches. I'll post more news as it becomes available.

    Whats the point of having a better search system? Patronuscharm doesn't even have that many stories.

    The point is the current search system is insufficient.

    What's the point of making absolutely useless comments?

    Getting banned, apparently (lol).

    That's awesome, LR. Patronus Charm may not be big, but it has most of the really epic stories on FF on it (unfortunately, I've read all of them...). I bet a fanfiction nub or two found Patronus Charm first, tore it apart, and then sobbed miserably about viewing that horror that is the majority of what is on FF.net.

    Most likely. I really do need to finish PC; university is a funnel for all of my time.
