Hello Everyone -

First, I just wanted to remind everyone that the CoverContest currently being held by EliteModScene for covers.jqe360.com is coming to a close soon! Make sure to submit so you don't miss the opportunity to win a custom case.

Second, I wanted to give you a sneak peak of what is to come in the next release - these notes are from our SVN so you may see things listed that don't apply to the end-user- and you may see things that get removed due to them not working at time of release- but with those stipulations- feast!
