Thanks. This is really great feedback. I hope you'll continue testing
the upcoming builds as well.

The frame issue is something we know about. After dragging and
dropping within a certain context, the frame and the zoom keys (and
others, possibly) will stop working. We'll hopefully have this fixed
this weekend.

The XO shutdown issue is something new - can you explain a bit more?
When the XOs were shutting down, did you see the "warning screen" with
those safety icons? Or was it a more sudden loss of power? Had these
XOs been left idle beforehand or were they being actively used?

It's the same issue, also mentioned above, hopefully fixed soon.

This is an activity you added yourselves, right?

We'll be removing Colors for the next release.

These 2 issues are the same thing, we've fixed it for the next release.

Thanks, I think these a new issues for us, I'll look into this and
file tickets as appropriate.
