Just to clarify, the message you are referring to
was posted in 2008
, in other words, a year ago as the current (PlanetPress Suite Version 7) was still in its design stage. Cosimo accurately stated that the feature was - at the time - scheduled for Version 7, but it eventually had to be dropped from the development schedule because of time constraints. If memory serves, I believe the decision to drop it from the Version 7 release occurred around September 2008.
We are still planning on implementing this feature in one of our next releases, but I do not want to mislead you by promising a specific timeframe. We are well aware of the benefits this feature would bring, so it is still high on our priority list.
I am sorry if we led you to believe the feature would be included for sure in the Version 7 package. We have the privilege of counting on a very active user community who is always suggesting more features, more improvements for future versions. This privilege comes at a price: we cannot - unfortunately - immediately satisfy everyone.
But we do try our best, especially when other packages offer a functionality we don't (and I'm sure the competition does the same with features they don't have!).
Please feel free to contact me privately if you would like more information on this issue.
