Sorry, to hijack your thread but I'd like to reiterate my question earlier,

What is the release status of 4.2? Is it officially released and the 
recommended starting point for new projects? Or is it still a little green?

I'm not trying to rag on anyone, I understand its a volunteer best effort 
project with community support I'm just trying to get some guidance on which 
way to jump on getting a new product out based on ELDK.
