d20pro pushed out an update today. Version 2.1 is out of beta and available for download.
You know, I recently ran a 4th edition demo game using d20pro. It's actually a pretty sweet little app for running remote games, and even for using as a digital replacement for your battlemat at your regular face-to-face games as well.
