Hylis, Nadeo CEO wrote the fourth edition of Hello Planet.
Here is the full article: http://blog.maniaplanet.com/blog/2014/06/30/hello-planet-4/

For the people who would like the key points, here is what Hylis thinks they are:
- Unlimited demo for any title with less than 100 online players
- Super setup that enable to simply invite on a custom title
- 3d models can be added into maps under some constraints, and I think it's really great for TM!
- ShootMania "Power Up!" operation that is upcoming really soon.
- No more info yet on Trackmania & Maniaplanet 4 next steps, but we are in great shape and with great ambitions!
