Categories are being replaced by tags.  Migration for this is not yet

File Association problem.

No idea - I don't see that.

Not needed.  Unlike some configuration boxes, changing tabs doesn't require 
that you save your changes first.  OK, when finished, is all you need.

Not yet available.  Use notes temporarily

No idea - as long as I have a notes field, I don't care.

They could be used that way, I guess, if the user wishes, since they are 
independently set.  I don't see the problem.  Ignore what you don't need, use 
what's available in the way that suits you.

You could file a wish for hiding the resource pane, though how you'd add a new 
resource, I'm not sure, if it was hidden.  Other than that, none of these are 
unknown or not already being worked on.
