Write support is unusable at the moment, it requires more work. However, read support should be in a good shape.

RAPPs respo was moved to its own respo and now automatically updates after each commit. (Alexander Shaposhnikov, Colin Finck) https://github.com/reactos/reactos/comm ... 43aec538b1

Perhaps with this done, maybe for the change log, we should include RAPPs improvements/additions/etc in it's own section? Just a thought.

It's not a change in ReactOS itself, it's in infastructure.

Sorry, you're right. I haven't seen new rotation bar for a while. A nice touch!
Added it along with a few additions.
