quick status from my end: 4.5 is tagged and out the door (in my mind
anyway) and I'm very close to having an alpha 5.0 ready for download
and install. In that branch I've already created a separate module for
thumbnails as a place holder for this code. At some point if you can
let me know what utilities and where to install them from that would
be great so I can run tests and I can bang out 1) 2) and 3) above for

fyi: the internal structure of the code, as in: how records are
fetched and prepared for displayed has changed
