Glad to have you here, Bill. But, at my place anyway, we use both 
Director and Rev. We use Rev when it has to look and work "like an 
application." My point is - Director has *never* had the things you 
mentioned, why would it now? That's not what it is about. Director is 
aimed at those who want to design every last bit of the interface and 
experience. We added Rev to our toolbox because Director is ill-suited 
to developing "applications", however we still feel it is *extremely* 
strong at its own field - multimedia, interactive, online...

I, for one, am looking forward to D-MX almost as much as Rev 2.0

This is gonna be fun...
