Sorry for the silence, I spend most of my time in Slack.
Buying and selling items using CoinoUSD as the currency is done. This means you can use a stable (versus the USD) price, and move the proceeds into NXT or BTC or whatever.
You can also buy CoinoUSD within the FreeMarket UI, using NXT or BTC. I am working on making it possible to convert your CoinoUSD back into NXT or BTC within the FreeMarket UI, but at the moment that conversion is turned off in the Coinomat API, so I have to wait for that to be restored before I can finish.
So, we are close to having a new release; we'll want to have some beta testers first though. After that, I think Escrow might be the next big feature, we'll see.
There have also been some bug fixes (around relisting and also around the display of account balances), and some small tweaks here and there to the UI.
