We are definitely planning on upgrading, and it should be in the near
future. We were hoping to improve the virtual hosting aspect, but 2.1
wasn't as useful for this as we had hoped. There are still changes
we need to make to our backend, however, and we need to figure out
the most painless way to handle migration over to the new machine /

I can say that this is currently being worked on, and while I can't
give you a specific ETA on when 2.1 will be fully working, it should
be fairly soon.  You can email support@ if you're interested in being
a candidate for early migration to 2.1 once it's setup.
