Goober in maintenance mode

I’m going to officially put Goober into a maintenance only mode. The framework I used to initially create Goober for Android has progressed such that I feel some significant refactoring is in order however I’m not ready to tackle it at this time.

pnut-matrix 1.0.0

The pnut-matrix bridge has now reached 1.0.
