There have been a few updates to Monsoon recently to enhance the UI
which aren't in the package i linked previously. I'll just quickly
outline them now so you don't have to install from source[1] to see
those changes:

1) The labels pane on the right is now completely context menu driven.
You can rename/add/remove labels all through a context menu. The old
menu screens which do this task are depreciated and are being removed.
2) The global upload/download limits can be set by clicking on the
speed labels in the bottom right.
3) There is ongoing work to remove the 'Druid' splash screen which
appears on first startup. Nearly everything there can either be
automatically set, or at least set in a better way. There is also work
being done to re-engineer the existing preferences pane.

If you have any troubles with/questions about Monsoon while testing,
give me a shout. I'll do my best to answer quickly.

Thanks,
Alan.

No problem, have a final decision by mid-next week would be fine.
