Unfortunately too many can’t remember or spell atk4, so we will be moving to a new domain:

We have been thinking about some new domain for the toolkit as well, but nothing comes to mind, so for time being we will leave it as “Agile Toolkit”. If you have a interesting idea – please share with me, I’d love to hear.
