Support for 01V96i and mixer GUI winge

Could any body from Steinberg please comment on whether you are going to support
the 01v96i in 64 bit windows and Cubase 7 ?

I notice there is a now a 01v 96i listed in the drop down midi devices menu
its just a shame it still doesn’t work with Studio manager or sync properly to
time code and other midi features which really ought to work after all the banging on about
integration that’s been going on off late.

I must also say Im in-favor of the new features that have been implemented in the mixer view in 7, but the GUI is ugly at best and huge.
It looks like ive got my monitors in the wrong aspect ratio.
what was wrong with the sleek lines of the old style interface.
