We hope to start testing a new release some time soon. We're currently 
waiting for our publisher id to be renewed before we can do anything.
The automatic announcing of the closest point is never going to happen with 
the current system. People keep asking for this and the answer is always 
going to be the same until a new database engine is found.
Automatic announcing of the distance to the closest checkpoint or the locked 
point could probably be done. This would have to be on an interval of some 
kind since you wouldn't want it to announce for every meter of change.
The ability to play waves or other files in place of beep tones is on the to 
do list. This shouldn't be too hard to do but may not be completely reliable 
on all phones.
