I hear rumor that some new products will be announced tomorrow morning along with some new revisions to the RB2011 (not yet released).

Attended the load-balancing workshop this morning which both confirmed my ideas about how PCC should be used but also went into detail on a few new concepts such as, using the MPLS Traffic Engineering features for bandwidth based load balancing over multiple links. As usual these slides + video will be available on tiktube.com when the MikroTik guys get back home.
