Hi Lorenzo,

I would also thank you for you time and effort you put in KiCad to
improve it. Especially because you also use it at work and normal at
work there is not much time to fix things. The code is improved very
much compared from two years ago. When I joined KiCad as a translator.
Since then there are many good new features and enhancements added.

Maybe nice to know that I give a 50 minutes talk at a Tdose in The
Netherlands again. Almost the same as previous year which you can still
look on a recorded movie.
