I am also impressed. The ability to cross probe when selecting a net in the schematic also highlights the net in the layout is useful. Also transparent mode is handy.
When implemented having a single file define the board for manufacture that's not in a proprietary format is wonderful.

I expected more on vias stitching. Nevertheless, it is great. I switched to KiCad and don't regret.
