Any chance there will be a log out feature (ie a script that can be linked to a button) added to the newer releases

A re-login does not appear to be required as long as the browser is not closed. A new log-in only appears to be required when the browser is reopened, not once the user leaves the protected pages.

I've suggested this software numerous times in the Expression Web Forums for an easy fix for old Front Page converts (like me) since there is no easy solution. The only negative comment has been the fact that there does not appear to be a logout feature that some users apparently require, leaving them with fighting the whole php or js scripts thing which many casual users are not familiar with and have trouble implementing.

This would certainly encourage additional sales, I would think

This would actually be outside of the software because a log out feature would be done on the browser level. You could easily add a JavaScript that kills the session id and forces the log out. Searching Google, I found many examples you can use.

"There is no way to log out of a .htaccess protected directory, unfortunately browsers have never implemented a "forget password" feature! So we need to be imaginative!

Browsers only store one password per realm so we need to trick the browser into storing another "fakeusers" credentials.

This guide will discuss a number of options, not all of these are proven but have been tested with mixed results."
