Hi Alvaro

Just a few minor suggestions regarding the wording.

In the paragraph commencing "Over 30 bugs have been fixed..." , at the end, 
replace "which we hope to attend to on its due time." with "which we hope to 
attend to in due course."

In the following paragraph, line nine, replace the word "less" with "fewer", 
as it is referring to a numerical value.

Finally, in the last paragraph, replace "....improvements we found...." with  
"....improvements we made....".
