The answers to the post questions are "YES" and "NO", respectively.  
I can guarantee those dates ;-)

I appreciate and completely understand your frustration over the release delays and I ask for a little more patience as we are getting close to a release.  I can guarantee you that everyone in Austin wants to get this new code into our customer's hands a lot more than you could ever imagine.  But we have instituted a more ridged quality assurance process to provide you with a quality product so that your user experience will be a quality one.

The delays have nothing to do with Win10, or anything like that.

The extent of the code re-factoring and internal optimizations we have done with v1.4 to properly support the included feature set is EXTENSIVE.  This requires a level of regression testing that is not normally required for a simple feature release.  This level of testing has delayed the release, but has improved the overall quality and operational stability of the radio.

Over the last several weeks we have been cutting multiple alpha releases per week for testing.  Each one is significantly better than the last.  The frequency of our internal alpha releases is indicative that we are in the final stages of polishing the release.

Please be just a little more patient.  We really are getting close.
