One positive thing in all of this is that with this version of Overbridge, Elektron at least seems to make sure it is done, stable, and well-tested before they release it.
Overbridge for the Mk1s always felt a bit unstable and unreliable, especially the initial releases.
It seems that they decided to do a full rewrite to make sure they have a solid and stable foundation for future development. That kind of thing takes time, but can make planning for new versions, additional features, and work needed for new OS releases much more reliable.
Once it’s done, it might actually “just work” this time.
