In the interests of a competitive marketplace, we cannot discuss specifics
about what is in store. Enterprise customers can get access to a private
list, but its effectively subject to non-disclosure.

That being said - I think you will find 2006 an exceptional year for
advancements in both usability and the underlying technology - and that
includes the IDE. In fact, you can modify and extend the interface of
Revolution yourself right now. Just take a look at the Constellation editor,
that integrates with the Revolution IDE:
