Posting in the Magento forums has been disabled pending the implementation of a new and improved forum solution which should better serve the community.
For new questions please post at magento.stackexchange.com, the community-run support site for the Magento community. We will be providing updates on the new forum solution soon. For questions or concerns please email email@example.com.
I would also love to see better support for subscription based products. In particular, letting the customer select a subscription period and having Magento automatically set the subscription end date.
I, too, would love to know the status or progress, if any, on the subscription/recurring billing development. Or if anyone can point to a developer who can help me build this piece into our Magento install.
