I look at it this way: I have the LP8 101. The new version has, what, 25 more minutes of material? Looking at the first demo, it looks awfully like LP8 (I don't see the Flex tool anywhere). So, I would gather that this isn't going to be significantly different than its predecessor, and so I am not concerned about waiting a bit.
The silence, however, on the part of MPV, is a bit disappointing.
