This is great news. Big congrats to the team.
Look forward to the parallel Query, Notification Alert and Recycle Bin features.
Hopefully the Java HTML parity should be the next most sort after awaited feature. Still on target for the 1st service pack after GA?
DHTML Parity is high on the list for SP03 (Q3 timeframe).. we aim for almost feature parity in the DHTML for the SP03 release and more over in upcoming SPs after this..
