Refreshed UI for ZoneDirector?

I'm assuming Ruckus probably can't comment much on future plans, so perhaps this should be taken as feedback...

XClaim and now Ruckus Unleashed both sport some relatively modern looking UI's. Not only do they look more visually appealing, but they also seem to expose more information at-your-fingertips that matter (like compact aggregate throughput graphs, etc).

On the other hand, the ZoneDirector Web UI looks like it's from the 90's — still fairly clunky looking. It certainly gets the job done, but it lacks some of the pizazz of the other products.

Are there plans to refresh the ZD UI as well, to be more inline with what Unleashed offers?

Probably worth mentioning, that while a newer UI would be nice, it shouldn't be at the expense of functionality and usability (VMWare dropping support for it's windows client for the web interface is a classic example of how not to do it). I'd much rather something that looks old and works than something shiny that is hard to use. 

About the only thing that regularly annoys me with the current UI is that the maps require Java, and that's not suppored in Chrome anymore and won't be in Firefox in another 15 months (unless Oracle finally decide to support the new interfaces)
