How is this a bugfix? This is major new functionality in the engine that has
been requested by many users for a long time and something I'd be happy to
pay for if it were a release on it's own.

Well... given 2.1 came out before Panther you can't call not fully
supporting Panther a bug in 2.1.

Maybe it's just me blowing my own trumpet but I know what I've done to the
distribution builder and "fixes" just doesn't cut it. This component has
been completely redesigned and has many new features.

Erm... again this is a new feature that we haven't had before and has been
much requested for quite a while.

I'd be very interested to find out what you class as a feature? For me it's
mainly new things being implemented in the engine or libraries but also
major workflow imrovements in the IDE.
