Hey, Steve!
I'm all for bug fixes and everything, but I think the real meat that we're all waiting for was hinted at in Scott's post where he says:

"However, we are developing functionality enhancements that will be available to Subscription customers in the near future."

Hope that near future is very near.

I noticed Scott Hatch's post at AUGI as well. That is what I'm looking forward to...
