Exclamation What happened at Chromecast Hackathon???

Hi!! Why nobody is talking about Chromecast Hackathon ??? I have only found some pictures of the event on twitter, but that's it...

The SDK will be realesed to public?? The mirroring found in 4.4.1 its a real deal? When will we be able to cast any file without root or special Roms...

Only recent news I've seen is from Dave Zatz's blog

Eventually.
We're waiting to see.
And No idea, but most likely when Plex arrives.

It was Invitation Only from what I understand and that usually means the folks who were there signed an NDA and can't comment on most of what happened.
My guess is that the Hackathon was merely a brutal test run Bug Killing fest of the SDK as they have to see if it is good enough for Public consumption and anything that may have come out of it is being incorporated into the SDK now and won't be released until they are sure it's good enough for public release.

Lets hope it does get released in time for Christmas.
Cause guys like Koush can probably pump out an All Cast for us hours after the SDK is officially released.
