We delayed the meeting we were supposed to have on 30-Jan that was also supposed to be when we shipped WiX v5.0.0-rc.1. We did not delay the meeting because we're behind schedule on WiX v5.0.0-rc.1. Well, to clarify, we didn't delay the meeting only because we're behind schedule on WiX v5.0.0-rc.1.

Today is our last Online Meeting of 2023. Our normal fortnightly schedule would have us meeting on 26-December, but as the week between Christmas and New Year's Day shouldn't require changing out of pajamas or speaking to other people, we decided to start the new year out fresh and have our next meeting on 2-January-2024. See you then!
