This release was all about fixing any problems that were reported in the last 3 and so months since the relase of 2005.01 but we also added some enhancements. Two biggest enhancements are User ID and Login Time columns in the audit grid and support of heterogenous transaction log sources in GUI (it was already suppored in CLI) The next major release will be all about new features and improvements. I can tell you that this next version has been in development for some time now and should be out in Q3. I will blog more on upcoming features soon - there is a lot of stuff already done and much more in the works.
