I was being sarcastic and following on from the previous post.

I was aware of the link through Mi Casa Verde Shop but most have been awaiting the new site to launch or opening it's door directly... And are still waiting as the counters have hit launch time but must have been aborted for reasons not know to us.

I am not preempting the future because when I was a young boy they said by now we were all suppose to have fully automated talking houses and flying cars both of which I really do have.

They have always shown several UI previously on both MCV and MIOS website and then there was the marketing video which was very precise... Remember the mock up for UI5 before it was launched and when it arrived it was nothing like what they previously presented. Of course you remember the fun with several devices post implementation so once again I am not preempting what the future will bring because if I could I would be buying Lotto tickets instead.

Basically you are right Brientim, I remember the UI5 story, and it was not a nice one. But I so badly wish for a new UI and some feedback from Micasaverde that I just don't wanna be to pessimistic and hope for the best.

Yes, I have a talking house which tell me to get off too work and I also have a flying car, it flies along the ground to get me to work too many times or was that my sarcasm attacking again...

Just look at @Inveltr website for a picture of my house in Byron Bay too  ;) wait I think I am dreaming of beach holidays too much. 

They was indication on the black hat security thread that indicated there maybe something coming in the not to distant future and even this thread is some sort of reinforcing that this maybe the case but what it is I have no idea.

I would not expect much for existing Vera and Vera Lite users anytime soon.

If it is a major release ... it will only be available on new hardware .... and the new hardware will likely have serious problems with plugins from the App store.

They would have to put it out as a Beta for Vera 2, Vera 3, and Vera Lite users to access the impact of system changes before making it generally available to US

Mostly I am looking for progress on the product line ...

Aaron from MCV stated that the next firmware will require updating third party apps for the new authentication. I do not think they will leave the Vera 3 and Lite users behind. Vera 2 would be questionable.

Authentication sounds like a nice and much needed addition
HomeWave is available in the App Store!  Turn your iPhone/iPad into an easy-to-use remote control for Vera.

Sadly I was told the api will be different. How much different, I do not know. I am hoping only for the authentication and the rest stays the same.

It's good to know they are addressing the security issues/concerns, as that were plastered all over the internet (it must have hurt MCV, although that maybe another reason why they are dropping that part of the brand too )

The authentication change has been going on for some time. Prior to the security announcements.
