Unfortunately, we've been focused on stabilizing the "next" branch, since the new configuration database has forced us to touch nearly every component of the system. We're making good progress on getting that through our QA department's regression suite. We're hoping to get the green light from them within the next week to merge these changes into master. Once that is done, fixing the issues the testing suite has found will become a high priority.
> Tetsuo-san's contribution has also been fantastic. All the bugs he's pointed out have come with patches that allow us to immediately see the defect and how to address it, so we've been able to quickly jump on them. When I get a chance to re-run the regression suite, we're going to be in much better shape.

I'll also consider use of a test suite. Thank you very
