Hurrying a product out of production
I have never been compelled to post like I have this time. It seems like you hurried this last release out, talking 5.2.7 and then a day later 5.2.8 and a day after that 5.2.9 and it still isn't really right. Why do I say that you ask? The icons, none of them show on my end. I have Windows 7, running on an AMD quad core processor with 4 GB of RAM. Never had this issue before. Than add to that it used to show when you hit the Turbo connection, now you can't really tell so I just assume it has. Make them go that nice blue like before again, a visual clue is helpful. Then the last three installs have taken about 90 seconds to start showing any changes, about twice as long as before. And yes, I am not done...lol. 5.2.9 shows it is still 5.2.8 so as soon as you install it tells you that their is a newer version available and would you like to install it. I even went so far as to manually uninstall 5.2.8 and then install 5.2.9 clean, yes, you guessed it, it didn't help one bit.
You guys have always released a clean, slick and usually bug free upgrade but this time you missed the boat ALL over the place. I am hoping 5.3.0 raises you back up to your usual standards. Keep up the good work, I love the new choices...it has really made this a more well rounded and accessible product.
