This is not the announcement.
This is an announcement about a forthcoming announcement; a pre-announcement announcing a soon to be published announcement.
Voat’s software release earlier tonight took a substantial time longer than we had originally estimated and because of this delay we didn’t have time to write an announcement about the changes we pushed.
We’d write the real announcement now but this is the best we can do at the moment. We need a bit of sleep.
I know some have a few concerns and we will address these also.
