Here is what I can tell you currently:1. A windows miner is being prepared.2. Nodes are being worked on to become stratum-ready (a step towards pools).3. The blockchain explorer is almost ready.3. Miner optimization is considered. Cuckoo cycle is different than other mining algos and significant optimizations are harder to achieve. The team is deliberating on what can be done.Also, I know that the focus of the dev team will now be on making the software more accessible/clear to users.

BRI votes are counted somewhat strange. A 0% vote isn't measured in the BRI rate, the only votes that count towards the BRI rate are the positive votes. (strange right) If you are one of the people that voted against, no mather for what reason. you might want to change your vote to 1%.This is the only way to lower the BRI rate.changing a 100k AE vote from 0% to 1% will lower the weighted BRI rate by 0.25% (its at 13.24% now)

Current results of the votes:0 =>34.19 %1-5 =>24.85 %5-10 =>1.13 %10-15 =>5.43 %>15 =>34.41 %These percentages count towards a BRI of 13.24% whilest the mayority of votes is clearly below 5%Almost a whopping 60% of all votes is below
