@Benoit and @Daniel - Thanks for your work in helping us to prioritize issues. Often it is hard to find the issues that have the most impact on people's day to day work, and having people out there who are willing to step in and provide some outside perspective is important.

it looks like the vast majority of community contributions came from European DNN Professionals :)

One aspect of DNN evolution in the recent years was localization, and I think that the Europeans appreciate the efforts that have been invested there.

FYI: There is a show-stopper bug in 7.4.2 if you are using the Verified Registration option - : I recommend not upgrading until it has been fixed)
