Development of FM has recently been moved to India. I don't know for
sure what this means, but my gut says there's an architecture overhaul
going on. If so, then I wouldn't expect a new version any time soon. If
it's just a basic move, then who knows what will be updated and when
it'll be available. FM's normal release cycle (given all past releases)
is about every two years...
