What version has full support, 7.09 (which I doubt) or trunk?


One has to use trunk, or the soon released 8.09 RC for it.

Cheers mate.
I'll let you know how I get on.....if you want to know..

kaloz: you meant 8.10, right;-)?

I can confirm that the Metro unit runs fine with 7.09.

nice! if they could also gain some competitive pricing it would be great!
