Quote from PhanxI'm not involved with the Grid2 project, but I would guess that your ticket was declined [...]
On a side note, don't feel like you have to switch from Grid to Grid2. Despite its name, Grid2 is not an official continuation of, or replacement for, Grid; the two are separate addons by separate authors. Grid is still actively maintained and developed.
It wasn't my ticket and it was filed back in Sept of '11.
I know what Grid2 is and isn't.
I forgot to mention it in the original post, but one of the biggest reasons I was complaining is from reading the Grid2 forum posts with "Will X and Y fuctions be added to Grid2?" and getting flat "No" and some base reasoning (main one being, mana bars) and then, they get added anyway.
And, pretty much every plugin that has been written for Grid2, has been absorbed into the core. (I actually can't think of one that hasn't been)
