All -- I've been waiting quite awhile for the newest version to be released.... it's now in Release candidate. I'm working on a test installation to see what will change. The theme probably will change, but I'm HOPING that I can re-use this theme without a ton of development and working on a darker theme. There are many improvements and I will let you know once we are updated. Some of the site updates were waiting on this update... others are still in the mix and trying / deciding how to move forward while I'm back studying for other stuff at work right now.
If you have time, please continue to help create and respond to posts to keep things moving forward. I appreciate all those helping to move things forward.
