do you now by whom? I asked a german distributor for the DK. It's price is at about 2600€ and they don't want to sponsor. The required documents are not available without the DK.

is there any kind of estimate on when support for a z-wave device that I can find in the wild is going to be added. A week, a month, etc. I'm jonesin to start setting a zwave implementation up and right now it's almost impossible to find a supported device that can interact with linuxmce/pluto

With the 0710 release due at the end of Nov I would think there is a good chance we'll see support added for the new Act USB Z-wave interface.
