    Great post! It is wonderful to see what the package contains. I have both Orbx’s PNW NABlue and have had Vancouver+ for years. I disabled V+ temporarily and all is fine. Awaiting the new compatibility release.

    One question I have, don’t know if you can answer at this moment, is if there will be a cost or upgrade price for existing V+ customers.

    Thanks, Alex. The upgrade will be free for existing Van+ customers.
