    I'm not part of the dev team, but I'm sure the answer will be "when an update is ready".
    Beta testers are testing beta updates as they become available to te beta testing team. Bugs are found and squashed and when the release is determined to be ready for prime time, it will be released.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    If by six months, you mean three months, then yes, there hasn't been an update in a while.

    There are several reasons for the lack of updates. The primary one being we now beta test everything for much longer before releasing updates to make sure they are now solid.

    We should have a public release very soon though. Aside from a few bug fixes, it should add a couple new features including simpler rear screen support and HD radio support.

    Chuck, no mention of Bluetooth. Please tell me something for bluetooth will be included in this next update because its been a very very long time with the "soon" talk of bluetooth. It was one of the main reasons why I purchased SD in the first place.

    Bluetooth is being worked on. We're ironing out issues with some phones now.

    Jan thanks for the update but that is what we have been hearing for a while now is there anything a little more specific like an eta? Being worked on could mean another 2 years, I know many here would be more then happy to have a 85% working bluetooth in the next update knowing its not 100% yet and its being worked on to completion.

    Even if I had a more specific ETA and I gave it, and we didn't make it, we would still be hunted down...even more so.

    No, I don't have an ETA. I don't develop. Only Chuck knows when releases are coming out...and he knows better than to say when he's aiming for.

    Jan but to say "soon" for 2 years isn't exactly fair to the customers who believed in this information to base their purchase of a software on misinformation. I can see if SD was freeware then well the SD team could tell everyone well it will be done when its done, problem is we paid for the software and were led to believe "soon" as in soon...
