@IstvánZachar since v6 grouping constructs can now be applied without setting CellGrouping->Manual. What the Cell->Cell Grouping->Group Together menu command does is to apply a style which causes automatic grouping to work in exactly the way you want. And then the Group Normally menu command just clears that style information. While this is not strictly as powerful as manual grouping, it is sufficiently flexible to handle pretty much every real-world concern. And because it's done via styles, it's much less fragile than manual grouping, which is the source of lots of bugs.

Why do you use CellGrouping->Manual? What are you trying to achieve that you can't achieve other ways? I've seriously considered deprecating manual cell grouping (since it's easy to manually group cells under automatic grouping), and I'd like to understand what you find interesting about it.

@Silvia No, you should definitely not consider it full support. My earlier statement stands unchanged for v10.

comment How often does Mathematica contact its license server?
@sakra It varies based upon how many processes MathLM is licensing. For a typical smaller licensing situation, it'll be 3-5 minutes. The answer is a range because there's a 2 minute ping, and the precise time depends upon how long it is from the kernel crash until the next expected ping, which will be the first point that MathLM has any indication that something might have gone wrong. After the second missed ping, MathLM waits 60 more seconds, then times out the license. For licenses of more than 30 processes, that time stretches out because the ping times stretch out.

comment Implementing efficient multiple undo
@jtbandes Thanks for the complaint (really!)...that's a pretty decent suggestion. It's odd that I've never tried that before despite the fact that I commonly do it in text editors.

comment How to get the new font in Mathematica 10?
@Szabolcs No. If you give a non-existent font, we let the operating system determine which font to use. The choice is entirely up to the operating system. But once we have a font (whether it matched or not), then we query it to see if it declares itself as being serifed or monospace, and use the appropriate Mathematica font with it. So, the behavior you're seeing is, in part, operating-system-dependent behavior that is outside of our control.
