As of Monday, May 14, Nate Kohari is no longer with the AgileZen team. Nate formally announced this news on Twitter earlier in the week:
This is really hard to swallow. My employment at Rally Software has been terminated, ending my involvement with AgileZen.

As an original co-founder of AgileZen, Nate played the role of visionary and technologist from the beginning. In the recent past, he was instrumental in building the AgileZen team within the Rally organization. His departure came as a surprise to the entire team, and he will be greatly missed.
It is impossible to replace a person and leader like Nate. As a team, we will continue with the vision previously set out in order to deliver the best product we possibly can. We maintain our August release date and are excited to share our new, amazing product with you.
As always we are available to field any questions, comments, or concerns you may have. We will monitor the comments along with our Twitter feed. Alternatively, you can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
