I'm not sure I understand why this should be so. I certainly agree that
new functionality (like the radio) should be "zero" priority until 2.0 is
out. But why relegate basic functionality that other models already have
to a low status as well?

If the FM is now fully supported (and we have already publicly stated that
it is), I don't see why the FM should be treated like a 2nd class citizen
and given lower priority than player and recorder models.

The bug fix is there, it just needs checking and applying. I appreciate
however that it takes your time (or Daniel, Byorn etc) to test and commit
changes that come from people like me, and appreciate that you are all
busy people.

My understanding was that the main priority now was bug fixing, rather
than new features, but this IS a bug fix, but only on the FM!
