[snip a scrambled HTML mess]

Do you realize what a scrambled mess your post looked like to those who 
choose not to enable HTML for security or other reasons?

Please set the message to plain text next time.  You'll definitely get 
more and more favorable readers that way, as many will ignore the mess 
that was, or worse yet, treat it as spam and killfile the sender.

Whatever the parent said, I agree with the OP.  Some sort of 2008.0 
status update would be nice, even if it's simply "We're still working on 
it.  Currently, we're targeting a media release in xxx."  Add beta info 
and other details as available/desired.

Duncan - List replies preferred.   No HTML msgs.
