Cool, seems like they are headed in the right direction!

I remember reading here about some complaints about ToonBoom and I think this release covers most of the ones I remember. I have not seen the upgrade price so I hope that it is affordable for all the users of ToonBoom.
Though not formally announced yet if you check on the Animate Pro page it reads "Buy Animate Pro and get Animate Pro 2 upon product release." I wish they had a list of what the new features will be.
