That's good news. If you need any beta testers (eg ex-Interakt customers), I would be happy to help. It might be useful to get input on the new version before the beta stage. I expect there are features which might be relatively easy to implement if planned early but too late to include by the beta stage.
Having just started to try DataAsssist there are other small details which I used to take for granted and was surprised to have to spend time 'fixing'. Going through each link to make sure the querystring is passed between pages is not only a chore but error prone. As far as a user would be concerned, returning to the beginning of a list each time you switch to a detail view etc. is a bug.
I know there have been questions about this; perhaps it's been raised as a feature request. It's just one of those features which is a fundamental requirement as far as functionality is concerned and is therefore an obvious omission in a product which aims to produce a CRUD application quickly.
