Come on.  You do understand that we can't provide a fixed date?  Development takes TIME, and HamHUD's not my full-time job. (I wish it was.)  This is why I was being purposefully vague when I answered the question...  Development for the new kits come first, then Rev E upgrades.

Jason's answer is completely consistent with mine, but I am being more reserved.
