We're always working on new software so there shouldn't be any real surprise in that piece of information.  In the past, we've run the spectrum of announcing well in advance what we're working on through not making any public comment until the software is complete.  Announcing what we're working on doesn't really affect when we'll be done working on it, but it has caused issues in that it immediately generates the "when" question and depending on the nature of the software, when is not always an easy question to answer.  Nevertheless, we've often also provided a best guess to when, which has also come back to bite us if we're not done in the timeframe which was provided with the best intentions.  

The inclination, then, is to not discuss what or when until we're virtually complete with anything we happen to be working on.  At this point, when we have a good picture of the release schedule, we'll typically communicate to let everyone know what's coming up.  This allows preparation time for any new features you might like to take advantage of that require preparation also.  Not communicating earlier is a little painful for everyone involved because 1) we all like to talk about what we're doing, certainly to like-minded folks like yourselves that have an interest in what we're doing, and 2) for the most part you guys like to hear what we're up to.  Our current policy is not to communicate about what we're working on while we're in the middle of things, deferring instead until we're about finished and the full picture of what we've accomplished is clear and worthy of specific communications.  In short, thanks for your patience, stay tuned and we'll post publicly as soon as we can!
