Happy New Year! Thanks you for your support for App Inventor and for your participation on these forums. We at MIT have closed out a great year: We met our major goal of launching App Inventor 2 before the end of 2013, and we're eagerly watching usage grow. More than 100,000 people have signed on to App Inventor 2 since we launched it at the beginning of December. App Inventor Classic is no slouch either, which more than a million users. We'll be keeping Classic running through the school year in the spring, to accommodate classes that are using it this year. We expect that people who are now starting out with App Inventor will start with AI2, and that people using Classic will migrate to AI2 over the coming months. With this key milestone passed, we're looking forward to an even greater 2014, with more curriculum, more classes, more apps competitions, and more enthusiastic people like you who are experiencing the fun and fulfillment of creating your own mobile apps. Here's to doing that together, For the MIT App Inventor Team, Hal Abelson
