Hi frank,

Welcome to the list. 

Just a couple of polite reminders and NOT to pick on you personally.

1) Please do not hijack a thread. Now there are messages which are 
irrelevant to the original question - which has yet to be answered. 

2) Please DON'T use HTML for posting. Not everyone likes receiving 
HTML e-mail; some consider it pure evil. I posted below your reply to 
show what HTML email looks like in a text email reader like mutt. At 
least you are not using Outlook Express or Comic Sans as a font  :-)

Now, in answer to your question, drop shadows is a good candidate for  
the roadmap for the 1.3 development series. 

Basically, except for minor non-invasive add-ins, we are not adding 
new features to 1.2.x. The focus on 1.2.2 and beyond is purely on 
stability and correctness. You can see the current roadmap on
