Perfect.Our focus is clearly on minimum size (without compromising cooling) while fitting snugly under 17" MBP...
I have just finished giving specialist course on RED at the International Film Festival Monterrey in Mexico and I am on my way to USA. You can expect the tech drawings, renderings and photos of the working balsa prototype within 2 days. Fully working milled prototype will be with Deanan before this week is over. Shipping units will follow before end of September pending final tests in the real-world environment...
I completely agree with Jeff - our goal is to make it as small as possible (I am hoping the unit to be less the 1.5" thick with the footprint of the 17" MBP. It is going to be very easy to adapt for rack-mounting for those who need it. The primary use for this unit is in a portable version on a location without the need to be connected to main power. So size, weight, ruggedness and silent & cool operation are the priorities here...
Expect a lot more from me in the coming weeks...

With Sincere Thanks,
I have just noticed that rocketcine-x build 661 is out (lots of useful tweaks there, thanks guys!) as well as the driver version 1.0.7. I don't see a change list for the new 1.0.7 driver, and as such I am wondering if I should install the new driver while updating my rocketcine software? And if so, should I install over or is there an uninstall process to follow first?
There is no uninstalling the previous driver, when you install the new driver it will write over the old one. You'll want to follow all the instructions and make sure you also have the latest firmware.
