Hey that's awesome.  We need to get you on 2.0 fast :).

Very good point.  We have a tendency to be anal about GA releases.  It's not
so much the bugs that are the problem though as it is the changes to
interfaces that others may depend on.  We just want to make sure that when
we do pump out 2.0 we solidify the interfaces and can still fix all the bugs
that arise in bug fix releases without having to change any interfaces.
That means getting a clump of features completed.

Hopefully our users will be able to derive years of use out of 2.0 without
having to change a line of code as they move across bug fix releases.

I can't wait to get your feedback on some of the new features.

Thanks for the kind words,
