Thank you for clarification! Is it any timeframe or roadmap available for 2.3 version?

Also, i'm just curious - was my guess about partial OLE implementation in 2.2.x correct? Or i'm missing some important technology details and it was some other reason why python and visual basic was not able to use MSCOM under windows?
