Version 1.8.2 is most likely the last version of the 1.x series. The development is currently primary focused on version 2.0, which is a full rewrite from scratch. Here the current development roadmap for 2.0: 2.0 PHASE 1 (January 2006) This release is an internal technical beta release to test the new code base in a real world environment. 2.0 PHASE 2 (February/March 2006) This second beta will extend the beta test to external testers. This release is 90% code complete. 2.0 PHASE 3 (TBA) The third and final beta is basically a code complete release candidate. The only difference between the final release and this beta are some bug fixes. As promised before, 2.0 is free for all Storyteller license holders. I just extended the member area access for all expired licenses to 2nd January 2007 and for all 2005 licenses/renewals to 2nd January 2008.
