    I've been using it for a while, but I guess I only have v. 1.1.1. I'll have to get 2.0, cool.

    Cocktail 2.0 is out?!

    I downloaded 1.0b4 months ago and absolutely adore it. Fantastic piece of software.

    World's. Suckiest. Interface. Ever.

    I'm sticking with 1.2: does the job and doesn't look like a baboon's arse.

    Just do be careful - caused me to lose my "Internet" icon and ability to change preferences - all links to "Internet" (System Preferences, Apple Menu, etc.) were dead. Managed to get it fixed with some help, but just be careful out there.

    Ugh, the Cocktail 2.0 interface is pretty gross.

    At least it works.

    Ohhhh...that Internet. I think of that as a preference pane. I understand.

    Yeah, the new interface blows goats. But I like the standard authentication.

    Meh. I guess we just hope for improvements.
