We're currently using 3.0M8, 3.0 will be released fairly soon (late June).
Let me know how those PDFs are. :) I've never read them, I just jumped
in and started using things.

The Radon Labs tools are something that we should clarify a bit.
First, they're tools that belong to Radon Labs and they're planning to
sell them. They're great tools. But at this point in time, they do a
very different set of things than what Nebula Studio would.

Sure. I don't really have anything though that it is exciting. What I
have is a quickly modified copy of one of the sample plugins that has a
tree view in it. I modified the tree view code to instead pull its data
Until a number of other things happen, it isn't very interesting. I'll
post a short roadmap that covers what needs to happen in the first steps
