    On January 11, 2011 TeraByte Support said that they expect to release BING (BootIt Next Generation) version 2.0 Public Beta in a couple of days.

    "Please, note that this beta does not include the imaging component. This
    beta is for testing the boot management and partition management features.
    It will eventually expire.

    "This beta does not include the disk imaging utility Image for
    DOS (GUI), however if IMAGE.EXE is found in the partition an option
    to run it will appear on the maintenance desktop. Also the memory
    requirements will be higher than BootIt Next Generation for certain
    operations.

    Known Issues that will be corrected in later betas:

    *) Video issues related to flickers/slowness
    *) Last path in file dialog used but not updated on status
    *) Delete key doesn't do anything in File Dialog
    *) Clicking columns with mouse on file dialog prevents keyboard selection.
    *) Can't Import/Export colors via a separate file.
    *) Keyboard mapping is not currently supported.

    Ability to restore .IMG files will require booting a V1 copy of Image
    for DOS, Image for Linux, Image for Windows, or BootIt Next Generation.

    Obsolete:

    *) Backup/Restore option for backup/restore of first track. (considering
    if a general "sector capture" routine would be useful).
    *) Use of the third party UDMA utility. No longer needed as BootIt BM
    supports direct access to devices.
    *) Partition Imaging - will be replaced with Image for DOS (GUI), Image
    for DOS can be used currently which supports entire drive operations
    or single partition.

    New Items:

    *) Runs in protected mode so additional features won't be a
    problem (BING hit limits)
    *) The Limit primaries option can be controlled on individual drives
    (however the global option in settings works like the older BING
    version did and changes all drives)
    *) Drive geometry can be overridden (note that many settings on the
    dialog are there for disk imaging use)
    *) GPT support for partitioning (not booting).
    *) Multi-OS supports other file systems (for non-FAT type the boot
    sector is not controlled; you would use it to change files on boot
    only).
    *) Direct support for PATA/SATA hard drives (by passing the BIOS for IO)
    *) Resizing Ext2/3/4 directly as well as edit file option for them.
    *) Several other items.."

    So looking forwards to the V2.x BING.
    Kudos to the coding deities at Terabyte.
    LOL, being pushed into the fuzzy user friendly world of GUI. ;)

    :shifty: Still on V1.x with XP here. :D

    Have to admit I have been looking at Storagecraft as back-up to the back-up.
    Seem to do NAS drives a bit better than TB. ??
    Happy to be corrected.
    BING still and forever a foundation stone.
