Discworld Source Code Retrieved – ScummVM Developers Thrilled and Already Coding

Well it will be released when it is ready is the best answer I can give you at the moment.

It seems that the possibilities are quite immense, yet the willingness for developers to embrace it running at a snails pace.

Yahoo! however are in the fast lane as they have now released a new beta version of their messenger application exclusively for the Windows Vista operating system. This is not the first beta version, but it now features voice functionality.
