Sorry for the late response, although there is not a lot of Elan news on the hardware front, lots of cool stuff on the software side. The new 6.0 software will be chock full of new features and capabilities such as:
1) Android compatibility (finally)
2) A full blown door locks interface that not only allows for lock/unlock and status, but also full account management, real time battery status, and a history view that will show time of entry and who's pass code was used. Also the ability to setup temp passcodes for maids, delivery men, etc. All directly from the Elan interface.
3) Full blown integration of the Logitech Squeezebox platform. This is huge as Elan has only given access to Pandora and Rhapsody from Squeezebox in the past. Now you get full access to ALL that Squeezebox has to offer (i.e. Spotify, MOG, iTunes integration, etc.). This also includes integrating with the new Fusion Ovation music server that is based on the Squeezebox platform.
4) A new "programming platform" that will make it much easier and efficient to program interfaces across all devices (mostly beneficial to dealers/programmers)
Plus many more updated drivers to control more devices/subsystems.
