i stuck my head in the back of a workshop on technology at the youth specialties conference and found a guy demonstrating a new version of arkaos vj. so i've just headed over to www.arkaos.net and discovered that Arkaos Grand VJ is a free upgrade (well it is for me! it might be because I only upgraded to 3.6 in july).
the interface looks hugely improved. check it out.
