Read all about it! Absolutely nothing to read about! Extra! Extra!
The Interactive Fiction scene has gone quiet in the run-up to IFComp, and there's a dearth of new text and text-ish games, although three demos are being released for Introcomp.
I've also taken a bit of a holiday from my work in progress / intensive planathon of the remaining sections, and my hopes of releasing it before IFComp have breathed a raspy death rattle. The IFComp results typically seem to come out in mid November, so I might try and release the game on my birthday (the 21st), or just before Christmas.
