[IronPython] IronPy Tools - updates?

Just wondering what the outlook is for an update to IronPy Tools for
VS? Normally I don't bug developers about this, but my motivation for
asking this time is that I've actually stopped using it.

I've been working on a Word document that's in my project root folder
(-1 for putting binary files under version control, though TortoiseSVN
nicely hooks into Word's 'compare documents' feature) and every time I
save it - AFAICT, literally every time - VS crashes and restarts. I
suspect it's to do with the temporary files that Word creates when
saving and the implicit project feature of IronPy Tools, since this is
already known to dislike things changing too quickly.

(Yes, I could copy my document to another directory to work on it.
Nobody else is touching the doc except me at the moment, but it turns
out to be less painful to use Explorer and Notepad2 to get through the
project for when I need a quick code reference.)

I'm keen to keep sending feedback/bugs, though it's tough at this
stage when the major issues in CTP2 are probably fixed or updated out
(plus it would help my tester-fatigue to get a newer version :) ).
