Partners are now beginning to be fed some documentation around bugs fixed in updates, so slowly things are heading the right direction. Also I agree that 2.1c it has to be said was one that slipped out very quietly. Though what amazes me is that it actually happened! Over the last few weeks Groove have released 2.1, 2.1a, 2.1b and now 2.1c. And all this with 2.5 imminent. So that shows a tremendous focus on trying to updates out.

My attitude to updates now is if there is no obvious reason for upgrading then I have better things to do with my time. As yet I see no reason why I should consider 2.1c as worth a look. Does anyone know any better?
