Are you going to fix this issue before release?

In 4.3 Line is delayed for one update.
It's very annoying to see Line and Histogram desynchronized.

I know it's not as sexy as Containers, but what about this suggestion? It sure would be nice to be able to set default skin positions without having to create a layout.

Do you have an actual timeline for when this will be officially released (out of beta)? It just so happens that I am almost ready to release a new version of my suite, and since it uses several 4.3 features, it would be preferable if I could wait to release it until 4.3 officially releases. Is that going to be soon, or still a few weeks out?

Anything "new" will have to wait a bit for a 4.4 beta version. Right now we want to focus on stomping out any remaining backwards compatibility issues with the change to D2D, and get the release of 4.3 out there as soon as possible.

It really does depend on whether or not any "bugs" crop up in the release candidate(s). If all goes well, I would expect maybe two weeks.

**Hopefully** this is fixed with the RC2 (should be available tomorrow). My apologies for not getting to it sooner, it slipped under the rug (with all the other bugs :Whistle )

Great!

I was afraid that you could just forget about it.
Also... Stripes on Histogram, Multi-size Icon.
I hope these are also being fixed :)
