Hi Gilles,

I used magma for two month now and it appears to be pretty much
stable. I didn't come to any data corruption or misbehaviour. 
And I killed the image very often! Using Magmacollections and
ReadStrategies you can get a decent speed in accessing things.

I switched to Glorp two days ago. This has nothing to do with
Magma. It's just a new insight that on my project the benefits
of an RDBMS are greater than a OODBMS. I personally am looking
forward to do an project using Magma. 

Hope it helps,


P.S.: I enjoyed your screencast very much!
