that the time scale is in the months range. The BoD is finalizing the
feature scope for the next production release (5.8) and XML isn't on that
list. It is tentatively slated for version 6.0, the idea being that after
5.8 is released development will be focused mostly on the XML conversion.
I don't think learning LST will be a complete dead end, its likely that the
new syntax will bear some relation to LST and hopefully there will be
scripts to convert LST to XML.
