it's going very well, but we are still having some issues with Windows XP and Windows 8. Most likely, it will release in October
These are the major features:

(1) significant performance improvement, much better than v1.1, similar if not better than Microsoft Windows 7 VHD boot.

(2) introduces a new file dependency driver, vbootfs.sys, so nested virtual disks can be mounted, and the mother harddisk can now be made hidden, and can deny all accesses except the vhd files. for example, you can add "hide" keyword to vboot command to hide all real hard disks.

(3) support merge, compact, expand functions to operate on virtual disks

(4) can be used in conjunction with our upcoming ram boot driver to boot vhd from memory, even for huge virtual disk files.

That sounds great. Will the upgrade to an existing installation for paid customers be a simple process (copying one or two new files)?

Thanks.

Based on our testing, you can simply run a command "vboot prepare" on offline disk, or run "vboot update" inside a running vboot disk to update.

To use the hide disk feature, you add an option to grub.cfg file, for example:

add "hide=0" to hide all partitions of the first harddisk, or "hide=E:" to hide volume E:

After v2 release, one of our focus will be to integrate vmlite and vboot, so the same virtual disk file can be run as a vm, or boot a physical machine, in a very simple manner.

For example, you can install Windows 7 to a vhd using vboot, you can either boot your pc, or sometimes you can also run it inside VMLite Workstation as a virtual machine.
