as an owner of all the solutions I would have upgraded automatically to V2 but it appears that if I do I will have to purchase a new licence for every site I create.
Think I'll stick to V1. Similarly I doubt I'll upgrade any of the other solutions.
As to the scripts I'll consider my position when new versions are released. May be time to join the extension library.
My problem is that my workflow generally starts with the solutions and ends with my using the other extensions to modify.
Just my thoughts
