    First of thanks for alphabetizing your product lists in the forums and downloads, it's a big help.  One question on how you name you releases, why is Q1 coming out in March?  Why not make the Q_ the first month of the quarter vice the last so that the second and third month of the quarter become the SP months for that quarter.  Ex January becomes Q1 Release, February Q1 SP1, March Q1 SP2, April starts over with Q2.

    Obviously it's not a big deal but I think it seems to make more sense.

    Hi Alfred,

    Thanks for the feedback. Indeed, we've got a lot of components out already (17 to be exact), so alphabetizing the forums by product name was the next natural step - please, excuse us for the delay - but we finally did it.

    We release major updates to our suites four times a year and we have named the releases "quarterly" - hence the Q1-2-3-4 acronym. Indeed, your feedback makes perfect sense - however we do need to adjust our schedule a bit before we fit into the Q1 = January schema - we released Q4 2005 in December and it is nearly impossible to release the next mahor upgrade the next month. Therefore our current Q1 2005 agenda is release time approx mid March 2006.

    We will do our best to fit into more sensible quartlerly releases, however we do need some time to adjust.

    Great feedback, keep it coming. We are listening.
