Lots of things have been happening behind the scenes and I haven't had time to explain much lately.  Part of the hidden work will be revealed soon (small part).

Just sent 10 LTC (BTC China Matching Challenge)
@warren :
A simple request :
I know you have plans to improve Litecoin.org website, but is it possible first to add a link to Litecoin Wallet for Android on Litecoin.org ?
On Bitcoin.org website (and others crypto-currencies websites), THERE IS a direct link to Google play to download their Android app...
New users downloading Litecoin on Litecoin.org don't even know there is a very good Litecoin Wallet for Android.
Users who are misinformed or websurfing on reddit don't know there is a very convenient Litecoin Wallet for Android.
Most Chinese people using and downloading Litecoin on litecoin.org don't know there is great Litecoin Wallet for Android.

It's better to request these features at https://github.com/litecoin-project/litecoin.org

It's already in the replacement site soon to be launched.

http://dev.litecoin.org/

It doesn't look much different yet.  Layout was redone with bootstrap and it now uses static site generator middleman.  This will make it easier for people to submit changes to the site in github pull requests, and for the public to translate the entire site into additional languages using Transifex.

@warren :
That's really great... thank you... the website will be perfect.
euuuh... and will you add a link to http://wallet.ltc.pe/  ( LTC.PE Instawallet)  ??
https://litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=13116.msg139136#msg139136
I think it's open source and totally legit (made by Someguy123 _ administrator and he made also http://explorer.litecoin.net/).
You could add a sort  of disclaimer (see below what they did for Bitcoins...)

I contributed a bit a code to the litecoin.org (new) website to make it faster and added meta data so search engines better understand the site.

As far as the above suggestion goes; you can request this feature at github. But I think, since it's still an external third party site that has not been around so long, that it's not the right time to add such online wallet. Imagine people using it as their main wallet? What if development stops? Or if it is not secure enough?

It's great as a hot wallet, but not as a main wallet.

InstaWallets are a VERY BAD IDEA.  Someguy being involved doesn't make it safe.  They are NEVER safe.  Many people have been screwed over by InstaWallets and cases where other people hold coins without you controlling the private keys.

I got flack from other "trusted" people in this community for being so down on InstaWallets during early 2013.

Look at someone who lost over 1,000 BTC to InstaWallet. 

The recent hack and shutdown of Flexcoin is quite similar to an InstaWallet.  It is simply a bad idea to trust anyone else with your coins.

Well yes OK, I trust you.
Thank you to warn me about such things (I believe then Dogecoin users must be worry now : there are links to 3 or 4 online wallets on their website...)
Let's forget the idea to add Instawallet...

The "secret" project in the Electrum thread is a hybrid wallet with local private keys similar to blockchain.info.  I did not open that fund raiser because it is a HUGE job and very difficult to do it correctly and securely.  So I don't think it's right to accept money when I am not fully confident it can be done in a way that isn't risky to its users.  Work had already begun and I'm waiting to learn more about the developer's skills before asking the Litecoin community to fund it.

This is part of Litecoin Dev's desire to MAKE NO PROMISES THAT WE CAN'T KEEP.

This is also why LItecoin Dev is separate from promotion/marketing.

Warren,

I was very interested in the Ethereum developer's presentation at the 2014 Bitcoin conference.  Bitcoin has Ethereum/Mastercoin/Counterparty etc. being built on top of its blockchain, and NXT is trying to do some the same things separately.

Should we be thinking about "Litethereum?"  There has been some talk in the community that building services that allow for autonomous organizations on the Litecoin blockchain would add tremendous value to our coin and further cement its status.

What are the developer's thoughts? Has this been discussed? 

We do not want Litecoin to be left behind as "2.0" crypto is being developed.  Thanks for all you do. :)
