Is it really worth it to spend the time making PyPRP 2.46 compatible?

Yes, because we wouldn't have to change anything. It might even have fixes to the Python API that would allow us to access more of blender's data in a nicer way.

is making a new "working" release really so time consuming or difficult ???

Yes, it requires figuring out exactly why things aren't working, which is generally a process of trial and error, and randomly noticing code typos.

Very nice.

In the background I take it that coding has started for animations, but won't be ready or initial release until many other smaller features are implemented?

I remember quite well when Blender 2.44 came out and the plugin had to be reworked so that it would function with the new version of Blender, which is why I wanted to ask if a hiatus was planned to make sure that the current plugin still functions with Blender 2.46 RC1, as the plugin is far more advanced since that time, meaning that there are places where bugs will occur, simply because a new version has come out

All in all sounds like things are going well here. I just returned from a long holiday and will start writing in the upcoming days again. I made some sketches and wrote down some ideas. Hopefully I will be able to realise those. I do find that i tend to come up with puzzle ideas that require animations :(... just a hint, although I'm all for better water ;)

Don't worry Marcello, do some little projects and keep your good-anim-filled ideas for later. And it never works well to "water down" your idea to work with your plugin features--leads to dull ages. :)
