good to hear this, Darwin.. when the dust settles, you may want to get more info on why he had not replied to your earlier e-mails..
Sorry lanux, just noticed this response. The developer mentioned that he isn't always able to reply to e-mails, but collects the suggestions and criticisms and adds them to a list for ananlysis. Didn't elaborate beyond that (though he apologized) so I'll have to ask him, I suppose. As you say, I'll wait for the dust to settle first - probably until after the new version is released, or if that turns out to be a long time coming, early in the New Year.
