Programming does take a special interest as well as a 'knack'. I program (had a VIC 20 to start on:) but I stopped for a few years and only just recently picked it back up. I have interest and some skill with it but I doubt I will ever have the 'knack' like The dedicated MAME Guys such as Nicola Salmoria. He truly has a Gift.
If you are not a programmer you will have to wait with patience for each new release. Sometimes its better that way, the tension and stress related to getting a 'next release' can be a bit overwhelming :\
especially when its done for free.
The 5 minutes of fame after each release is nice but only goes so far :)
