Quick comments - first, the files look GREAT. I love the ability to turn off the cutlines, and toggle the registration marks. Nicely done.
While it's a nice touch to ship older and newer cutfiles, it's not really necessary, since they're really identical save for the registration mark setting. It's not too unreasonable to default to the newer format - most people with an older machine are probably familiar enough with the process to know what to do.
Just my personal preference, but I like to see score lines and cutlines colored differently. My preference is score lines being blue to match the color they will be when you set the cut settings, and cutlines red. But, FDG standards are somewhat the inverse, and plenty of people don't care one bit.
page 03-04.studio3 has an extra cutline that overlaps a scoreline at the top of the page...
I'm psyched to see this with cutfiles. I didn't have a chance to try out the new cameo tonight - I had to actually redesign my desk so that it would fit - I've got in *under* my printer... Maybe this weekend I'll have time...
Almost done building the cloister model. It's really impressive - more amazing in person than in the pictures! Gak I can't wait to see more of what you guys produce! Really wonderful.
EDIT: I had mentioned the one ramp I built didn't come out great. It turns out I put in one piece upside-down, which explains the poor fit on both the top and bottom. Doh! Subsequent pieces came out perfect!

Everything tried to get in my way (I had to redesign my desk... I had to flush my printer tanks...) but it is done!
Here's one pic. I posted a couple others at my blog, though it is pretty evident I'm not a photographer...
What a great model. I have to admit I had a hard time assembling some parts, but perseverance pays off in the end. Edge. A lot. Dry-fit the pieces, figure out where there is likely to be a gap, or a fold sticking out, or two pieces that may not align perfectly. It's worth it.
I own a whole bunch of buildings, but NOTHING like this. Two thumbs up!
I'm not much of photographer either as you can see. I'll have to agree with mproteau on his suggestions was a fairly challenging build. Sorry about the quality of the photo I was being attacked by a hoard of house cats jumping up on my table while trying to take a pictures, believe it or not this was the best out of 5 pictures.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
