Many thanks to these people for their help with Frontier!
Frontier is free.
That means that we've needed to rely on our community to provide the functions that normally, in our experience as commercial developers, were played by employees.
Testing, getting user feedback, writing sample material and scripts, have all been done voluntarily by some very talented and generous people. We couldn't do it without lots of help. And luckily it's been there.
Many thanks to the following people for their help in getting various releases of Frontier out the door.

We've been blessed with some great friendships that helped make Frontier really work. There is some hope in these lists, and sometimes that hope wasn't realized. People come and go. Some people deliver and some don't. But...
Leonard Rosenthol is on all four lists!
A very special thanks to Leonard for believing in this stuff and putting his beliefs into his software.
Dave Winer, Doug Baron
