Cura 3.1 released, and no one said anything

I just refreshed my Cura download page and saw that 3.1 was out. Downloading now. Surprised that I didn't see anything about it here or other locations. Not even a beta announcement.

I had to go to the website and click on the release notes to see what is new...I did get an automated email telling me 3.1 is out.

Sue and I have had a hectic year. And I’ve just been diagnosed as having type 2 diabetes, possibly linked to the bout of flu I had 5 years ago that damaged my hypocampus and I lost my senses of smell and taste. Bit of a bugger as one of the only things I get is sweetness and I’ve got to cut it out.

I'm sorry to hear that. I'm sure that will require some lifestyle changes but at least it is treatable? I have a coworker who has to carefully monitor his sugars.

Izzy,
I am borderline type 2. IT can be controlled by changing eating habits easily enough. One big change I made is switching to Blue Agave for sweetener (coffee, tea). Also, I gave up beer ('m a bit of a beer snob anyway - used to brew my own). For alcoholic beverages, I have a local distillery that was founded by a couple of chemical engineers. They make clean ethanol (170 proof), then infuse it with flavor before cutting with water to bring it down to consumable grade (70-120 proof depending on the product). They use agave to back sweet (which is how I discovered it). The problem is getting it. It isn't sold in most US states, let alone overseas.

Good luck.

One thing I started doing a few years ago was switching out my sugar with stevia. Granted, it's an acquired taste but I finally got there. I avoid all aspartame / nutra sweet, Splenda (chemically altered sugar) and if I can't do stevia, I'm ok with Sweet n Low (saccharin).

After working at the hospital system for 7 years, I sort of became a health nut...seeing what I saw daily, and learning so much can be avoided with proper diet/nutrition. Well, that made me think twice about the baked goods and more to the fruits and vegetables. (I'm always envious of those 90-100 year old people who get there eating anything they want...cigars..booze....I just know I don't have that sort of good luck!)
