Hi Jim. Yes, this is the best place to engage in a conversation with the community about new features and experiences with bugs and bug fixes.
Our goal is for the forums to be a community mainly driven by users and partners and monitored by xTuplers. I'm pushing my teams very hard right now to focus on the development of new features, enhancements to current functionality, and bug fixes so that we can provide a better user experience. That said, we do monitor the forums for insight from you and the entire xTuple community.
