Seth Dillingham is putting together an auction of software CD's where the proceeds will go towards the Jimmy Fund, for the research and treatment of cancer at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Flying Meat is donating 5 licenses of both VoodooPad and FlySketch of course, and a whole bunch of other mac developers are doing the same.
I believe the idea is to have both a mac cd and a windows cd to auction off- but right now the windows donations are lacking quite a bit. The current score is Mac donations: 26, Windows donations: 5. So you if you know any windows developers, send them over to that page and prod them into participating. It's for a good cause after all, and I'd just hate to see the windows folks get shown up by us tiny little mac developers.

I'm currently getting Gesture ready for a public beta. Documentation needs to be added and more actions need to be created, but it's a pretty neat product to use right now. I've been doing my usual build system where a recent version goes up to a "latest builds" page, which can be found here. I have also posted some movies which show an updated interface on the wiki over here. It isn't just about AppleScript anymore.
It also looks like there will be a FlySketch 1.5.2 sometime in the near future to fix some copy + compositing mode problems, and I'm also planning on a FlySketch 1.6 which will be a feature update. FlySketch 1.6 will most probably happen after VoodooPad 2.5 ships.
I'll be spending most of my time on VoodooPad again once Gesture is out the door. The next planned release is 2.5 and I've got a list of cool things that'll be adding, but honestly what I'm really looking forward to the most is working on VoodooPad 3.0 (think early 2006 for that release date). I've learned not to talk about expected features, but I think people will be happy with what's planned (for both 2.5 and 3.0).
I should also note, that VoodooPad 2.5 will no longer support 10.2. For the 0.73% of you that are still using VoodooPad on 10.2- sorry, but it's time to upgrade :)
