When is FogBugz going to coexist with DEP?

I've seen posts about the DEP issue from over 18 months ago.  As far as I can tell, the only resolution seems to be to disable this security feature for the entire Windows 2008 server.  Is that still the case?  If so, Fogcreek, would you please fix this problem?  Thanks.

We have plans for FogBugz 7 to work with DEP switched on.  This requires quite a deep change to the software, so it's not something we could've easily offered in FogBugz 6, which was released before Windows Server 2008.

For most of the life of FogBugz 6, Vista was the primary reason that DEP needed to be switched off.  Being that Vista is a tiny percentage of our install base, it didn't make sense to work on it for FogBugz 6, especially since DEP could just be switched off.

This is now hitting more of our customer base with the release of Windows Server 2008.  But by the time the release happened, we were actively working on FogBugz 7, where it's not an issue.

Hope that explains the delay a bit.
