The official forum for developers previously had active support and releases announcements. Now it's all about spec paper work. The google groups has also stopped accepting new posts since May 14th! The last post about new tech releases on the blog is from May 3rd. After that, the blog became a pool of internet available IDEs and then several other stories sending developers to other networks. Note that this come just after they fixed a security issue by disabling all forms of profile views of the widgets that do not use template views. which is described in 0.7 and greatly refined in 0.8 only. Brazilian and Indian developers wonders how much long the google groups blackout will last."
