Great news, thanks! Very nice to hear you're still working on it. My last post was not meant as a complaint, so I hope you didn't take it as such.

Do you keep a wiki page or a blog or something, where progress could be followed? I guess concerns start growing when we don't know what's going on.

Now operating in otherwise-employed-volunteer mode -- nights and weekends -- I've been prototyping against the 2.60 release. I have stated on this list plans to have the major NDOF issues fixed for 2.61, and still think this is doable. Very much aware of the pile of suggestions, patches, reviews, bug reports, etc. about where 2.59 did and did not work for people, I'm glad to finally be able to get back in there and make it better.

Compared to other programs I believe that the most important missing features still are panning, the ability to control objects and even scrubbing the timeline.
