Apps:
Apps->Maintennce  - The following selections have non-functional "Go >" and/or "< Go"  buttons:
Md5 Checking
Check for Updates
Check for Orphans

I could see them as replacements for"Add" and "Delete" in "OnBoot Maintenance" and "OnDemand Maintenance", but they do not appeqar in those two screens.

Would be good to have a 'Current version' button / menu in Apps. I was playing with different version just recently and would have been good to have an easy access to version info instead opening a terminal just for that.

In Apps installing an alread installed extension you see a yellow OK in the bottom status line and you are happy to have a fast broadband connection. Few versions back there was an 'Already installed' or someting like that popup message. Would be good to have it again.

No plans to add more features in late stages of testing. If such were allowed we would always be in release candidate mode.
Please save your ideas and suggestions for the next release cycle. Ideas and suggestions may not always be accepted and for cosmetics, know that I cannot please everyone. I, of course, will do my best to fix bugs.
