Thanks for posting the article!

It may be a relatively non-controversial piece of simple "good news", but it's still really valuable to have on the Forum; it can be really time-consuming to aggregate EA news (I compile the EA Newsletter, so this is often annoying to me), and the more the Forum becomes a good "default place to see what's new", the more useful it will be.
