This question is largely directed at the CS-MARS development team.
Will the difference in features between GEN1 CS-MARS and GEN2 be equalized through software updated? I myself has slowly come to realize I bought the CS-MARS to early and would really need some of the features that seems to be exclusive to the GEN2 appliance.
I would be more specific if you can. What specific qualities/behavior in the GEN2 are you wanting on the GEN1? Supposedely, there will be a "code merge" later this year (version 6.x). "under the hood" the GEN2 and GEN1 appear to be so different that I will be suprised if the software is totally the same. However, the delta should certainly decrease though ("functional parity" as Cisco likes to say).
