The new email integration looks great.

Can you explain the "Automatic license tracking" feature? It's not a "phone home" system is it?

When you install 3.0 on a new computer, or buy additional licenses, you type in the FogShop order number and the email address you used to buy the software; this downloads the encrypted license record automatically from our website. I'm not sure what the technical definition of a "phone home" system is :) but once you install the license it never connects to Fog Creek again.

That's good.
