Purchased Komodo 4

I just purchased Komodo4 SP. After I paid with paypal, I instantly received an email with a valid download link. Great service! I was gonna wait until the MP version, but see there is no economic disadvantage to buying both and don't mind supporting Larry and Don. So - When is the MP version coming ...
