Question:

Will there be any withdrawal methods other than paypal? Not all countries can receive paypal due to its country limitations.

https://www.paypal.com/worldwide/...

What about moneybookers?
http://www.moneybookers.com/

It is available worldwide not only to send money, but also to receive.

5.4->5.5->5.6~->5.10->5.11 etc

They will have to get another domain if they go to version 6.

Here are a few questions I have.

1. With so many developers learning/discovering C5 and so many of them actually using it regularly now. Does C5 plan on making upgrading to the next version of C5 "less buggy"? With add-on's and a lot of custom work done to websites (Which is a strong point of C5) I seem to run into problems currently with every upgrade.

2. Andrew came out with a fairly popular how-to titled "Building An iPhone Optimized Version Of A Concrete5 Theme". It would be very nice to see a version of this in the default install of C5 (much like Plain Yogurt). Is there anyway we could see something like this in the near future of a new C5 release? Could this potential "Mobile Default Theme" Include optimized versions for Android and Blackberry as well? This would help out many theme developers and give C5 another "one-up" to its competition.

3. One thing that makes C5 so nice is the fact that all the add-on's work and play friendly with other add-ons. This puts C5 in front of Joomla and others in my opinion. Does the C5 core plan on continuing to make sure all add-on's install/uninstall, work properly, and play nice with other add-on's no matter how overwhelmed C5 gets with its popularity?

4. Do you think themes in C5 will ever be as popular as the add-on's in C5?

5. Does C5 have plans on making it's core faster for everyone? Even those on shared hosts and/or crappy hosting plans?

A list of 5 just for Franz!

With the community now gaining weight every day, What is the Open Source Direction/Path for Concrete5 going to look like in the near future as far as development?

Any chance you will record the show for those that can't make it?

Yes. I will be saving the session as recorded video, and we'll announce the link once we finished it.

.... unless none of the following happens:

- The Internet connection breaks
- The camera gets breaks
- Franz, Andrew and Katz got drunk


blah blah blah...

Few questions -

I'm really looking forward to the file-manager updates in 5.4.1 (not sure the version sorry!) But was hoping there might be some more ability to manipulate the files ie:
1. Re-order a set
2. duplicate an image
3. break out revisions (so I can make a thumbnail of an image and still use the original as well)
4. auto thumbnail creation that is tied to the image (for insertion into content, not for filemanager purposes)

(sorry if you can do these, I haven't seen how so far!)

Pagelist
I was hoping this might soon turn into something like Views with drupal... where you can pull data from different plugins to change how things are sorted / displayed. I know its on the roadmap - any progress?

I have found that requests for paid custom development and add-ons using the forums and job board often results in little to no response. Can you comment on small web firms wanting to support c5 but finding some client requests beyond our ability?

In other words, if we have money to spend, and no one is wanting to help - would the new support services c5 recently released be an appropriate avenue?

I've noticed as I have used several themes for my clients, that many of the themes that are for sale in the marketplace require addon blocks that also cost. Is there a way to require that all themes be created (or at least advertised) free from all dependencies on paid addons?

Franz forced me to drink beer during the show.
And I was in a hurry for Japanese show...

So it's all Franz's fault :p
