The last two didn't happen. For the past month I had no email from Eugene, no update or whatsoever. But it seems he actually posted an update about his current status on FM Ukraine a few hours ago...
On his post which is originally in Ukrainian, he says Genie Scout 11 will be released when it's done and can't promise he can make it even in 2 months from now. It has been tough for him being a family man and having a regular day job to pay the bills. Bottom line is he had no time to finish it yet, but if he had he would need 2 or 3 days of work to get it done.
In case you're thinking Genie won't be released at all, by 'this year' I merely mean 2010 which is ending in 3 weeks from now by the way.
While I can understand and accept the break of promise for delivery of the interview mainly, I don't accept learning about an update he posted on some other site when this is supposed to be the official place for Genie. Having said that, I won't be sending a new email to him to ask for anything. If at some point he gets Genie Scout 11 ready for release and remembers who he should contact first, you'll see it here first. Until then, feel free to check upon FM Ukraine for any updates.
Update 9 Dec: I received an email update from Eugene today, he guarantees Genie Scout 11 will be released eventually but like I said not this year (2010).
