No Worries.

If you look at the roadmap for SB[1], CD ripping and podcasts are 
scheduled for 1.4 (project codename: Kanye) (I am too really keen on 
these two features, both for me and for my Wife who I have had to 
continue with iTunes in a VirtualBox VM for the time being).

For me that release will make it virtually feature complete. I will be 
testing their early code and helping where possible.
