just the same case as helena (architect-user without programming ambitions)
and absolutely agree with her.
probably people like us would like to be up-to-date on software releases,
their characteristics and qualities, and eventually contribute as beta
testers or discussing questions about usability, preferences, etc. and it
would be a great idea to separate this issues from the detailed tech talk.
my vote for the first option too!
