New firmware for the View anytime soon?

It's been a while since I've heard any talk about new firmware for the View. 

 

New firmware was released today for the Fuze and the release notes contained a phrase I'm not familiar with... "New Features".  Smiley Indifferent

 

So?  Can anybody tell us (without giving a specific date or timeframe of course because then when its late, god forbid,  we'll come after you with torches and pitchforks) if there is new firmware planned anytime soon for the View and if it may contain something called "New Features" in addition to the all too familiar "Bug Fixes"?

Yeah... and apparently Rockbox is getting pretty close to being ported to the Fuze too.

Heh, kind of depressing that the Fuze is cheaper than my 8gb View now

I don't think it is comming any time soon. SanDisk is currently focused in their new "top of the line" products. I hate to say it, but we are pretty much stuck with this piece of Junk. I hope I'm wrong though.

That's not my point.

 

My point is the Fuze is getting firmware updates with enhancements and NEW features, as in features it didn't have before. 

 

What do we get?  We get firmware that we HOPE makes it work like its supposed to in the first place and doesn't break anything else.

 

My point is it would be nice to see the View getting the same attention from Sandisk the Fuze and the Clip get.

I must admit, it would be nice to see at least FLAC support on the view, since they saw fit to furnish the Fuze and Clip with it.
