From the December "Flex Insider" newsletter that I received on December 12th, Steve Hicks, N5AC, VP of FlexRadio Engineering, wrote:

LAN remote has required more effort than we originally estimated.  We ended up working on several key systems and streamlining them (software engineers call this "refactoring") to ensure the best quality of audio through the remote LAN.   We were hoping to be able to release v1.4 before the end of the year and we continue to see this requested -- we would love to be able to do it.  From where I sit now, I can say that we have done most of the refactoring work and are poised to finish up this work and start testing in earnest this next week, but I don't believe we will get enough testing time to ensure that the code is stable enough to release before the end of the year.  We are currently targeting January 30th for the release and feel confident we will hit this deadline.  Trust me, we're all disappointed that this is the answer and we're working to get you a great v1.4 as soon as we can.  Our unchanged goal is to deliver you the best radio equipment and software available and sometimes this takes more time than we originally forecasted.
