For example Pressing Shift lights up right shift arrow while pressing but fades to a very very light grey after releasing the button. I don't notice this same behavior with the hp50g. I'm new to new RPL so perhaps I'm doing something wrong.

It's not unusual, it's by design :-), it's exactly the same as the 50g, perhaps your contrast settings are different and you don't see it? When you press a shift, the annunciators go dark until you release, then they "latch" in lighter gray.
Basically, light gray = shift+key, and black = shift-hold+key, they are two different shift planes with different functions in many keys, hence the visual hint in the annunciators.

For the time being, you can play with USBSEND/USBRECV. I haven't done anything yet on a serial driver, but USB is fully functional, the only down side is that the other side needs the newRPL Desktop application, you can't really connect it directly to other devices.
On the bright side, using newRPL Desktop you can copy/paste into other applications, and save objects to disk easily, so it's not much worse than using a terminal emulator with some obscure Kermit server.

Alarms are not buggy at all, but the buzzer doesn't have a driver yet... so it's a very quiet alarm for the time being. The good new is... I found my 3-channel FM-synthesizer code, as soon as I get some spare time I'll try to port it to newRPL so it will sound much better than the usual "beep".
