I am also still working on Tichy  when I have time (that is not so
much I am afraid). I plan a new release soon. The next version will
(hopefully) have : full screen switch, improved keyboard, a new style,
a terminal application, support for exporting PIM data to org-mode
format, and a lot of code cleaning.
