Aha... I did not notice that a command line interface is available. Excellent.

In this case I will just learn to use it. However, I will probably have to 
send a few journals in the raw format until I adapt my toolchain to the new 
interface - please be patient with me. :-)

Yes, that's definitely true.

I will be glad to provide my help; however, I have to stabilize the new 
release first ;-)
