> Dear List Folks,
> I have today received some sad news. I am told that Hermann Hoch passed away in April this year, from a stroke. I know many of you knew him either remotely or having met him in person at a conference. He will be missed. I met him myself and found him to be a wonderfully warm and kind person. He could be volatile, but I always felt it was because he cared passionately about things.

> LiveCode HTML5 didn't always meet his expectations or progress as fast as he wanted it to and I do wish he could have seen our next planned release, where HTML5 support will be a focus. He was of great benefit to this community and shared his expertise freely.
