I think we are waiting for Zini to call for release packages to be built though. Once they are, lgro could I trouble you to help me with the uploads? I'll let you know if I get to it before you though.

raevol, I think they are generally referred to as soul gems rather than soul stones. But I dunno if it exists anywhere like that in lore or not.

Also, 'prodigious'. I like it :D

Ah, I took it from the bug report... too lazy to fix.

EDIT: Nevermind... not too lazy...
