Yes.  This is the official answer from Gerald on this issue from an earlier post.

Our software team focus has shifted from feature addition to maximization of performance and stability.

LAN Remote involved major surgery that pointed out bottlenecks in the existing code that required re-factoring to achieve best performance.  Code re-factoring creates new bugs that must be located and fixed before the software is released to the general public.  Code re-factoring is a fact of life in order to build high quality software that evolves over time.  We expected to re-factor this specific code at some point but the bottlenecks incurred with the new feature moved the work into this release.

We are currently in the cycle of alpha test > bug reports > debug > alpha test > rinse and repeat until done.  For you software guys, we use Agile methodologies that produce daily builds and frequent releases to the Alpha Team.  A new alpha release went into field test yesterday.  

As Steve said in his article, we are targeting a January 30 general release.

Thanks for your patience as we complete the process.  We wish you all a very happy holiday season.

73,
Gerald
