First review round: 15.7 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

Did take quite long for receiving the review, but after asking the editor about the status, he responded quickly that it takes some time because they search for reviewers that are willing to actually have a look at the software and not just the paper. After the review, the process was very quick.
