TW shouldn't be rushed out unstable and frustrate both users and viewers alike, particularly with mobile device viewing.
Can't wait for the release though. I have customers waiting for this with the promise of mobile compatible tours.
TW 6.5 supports HTML5 tour now, and you can update the installer at http://www.easypano.com/download-tw600.html
Be aware that the html 5 tour can be viewed on your Iphone or Ipad only at the moment. We will release another installer by the end of this week, and you will be able to view the html5 tour with safari on your PC or Mac by then.
If you have license key for TW 6 and would like to activate this update, please transfer your license key under Help in TW 6.0 and use the same key for activation. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any problems.
Note: It is a beta version and bug(s) might exist. Please report to email@example.com if you find them. Your help in improving Easypano products would be highly appreciated.

nice greetings greenlife
It is correct that the files will become cube faces with HTML5 output. Input can be Spherical or Cubic, doesn't matter.
iThings don't deal with memory very well. You can replace the thumbnails with your own custom images or set a selected FOV of the scene as if you where making a Flash tour. No problem there.
Quick sample with partial scene view thumbnails at www.omnipix.net/temp/html5
The first issue I see is the joins of the cube in Safari on PC/MAC. On iPhone it displays well. Another is I see where the scroll bars both Vertical and Horizontal would be. It is also very low resolution using the 955px cubes for display on a PC/MAC. Really we should get three (3) tile sizes at html5 publish 1) Safari 2) iPad 3) iPhone as a minimum.
Others may like to give feedback how it displays for them on their iPod, iPhone, iPad, or Safari Browsered Computer.
