YES! This is EXACTLY what I've been waiting for since I started using my Newton. But I think it would be also useful to get the source code/documentation/whatever to fix this bug in 1.x machines too (if it even exists... I'm not sure). There are a lot of 1.x Newtons being used, I'm sure, and if _their_ 2010 bug isn't fixed, this means that around 30% of all Newtons around the world will be unusable. And we certainly don't want that.

Of course it would also be great to get new printer drivers for today's printers and a way to use modern electronic mail with 1.x machines, but then we would be asking Apple for too much...
