Brent Vukmer and Ken Causey are the lead developers. Thanks to Ken Causey, the release got out in time!

BFAV 2.0 looks pretty similar to BFAV 1.31. Most of the work that went into BFAV 2.0 went into two goals:
  1. Connecting the BFAV 1.x UI to a new back-end
  2. Cleaning up the UI and Model packages to make them easier to understand and maintain
Probably the most noticeable changes are:

BFAV 2.0 has been tested on Mac and Linux and didn't have any obvious problems. BFAV 2.0 was tested on Windows 2000 and there were some issues related to the HTTPClient library not retrieving an HTTP response correctly; I think this might be a Windows VM issue but I haven't looked at it very hard. Help troubleshooting this problem would be very welcome.
