The number of options has been kept small for several reasons. Most importantly, it makes it easy even for new users to modify the settings, instead of being limited to copying other users' settings without really understanding how they work.
Small bug detected: Sometimes when I change song in playlist, foo_textdisplay is'nt updated with new song.
An usability issue: If you use text display for selected track you are not able to click inside of text display without loosing selection (in selection properties the selection is not lost) - so you can't use f.e. the "copy text" function.
Go to layout tab of settings, check box for custom colour, change the colour: you will see in the UiElement the new custom colour. Then uncheck the box: you will see in UiElement the default colour. So far so good! But if you then check the box again the text display will keep the default colour although in the layout tab the custom color is choosen.
A little bug though, when i disable "Prefer playing track" it would only show "Nothing selected" even if there was actually a track selected. Restarting foobar fixed it though.
Is the selection properties element updated when that happens? Note that when you select multiple tracks, the text display element will only display the first one, no matter which one has the focus in the playlist.
I haven't been able to reproduce the other reported defects so far.

Still not tested RC2 (I can't open the archive, downloaded with FF3 and IE7), but with RC1 if you have more than 1 Text Display in your layout, they don't seem to refresh correctly on track change.
About the RC 2 Zip archive: I have no problem opening the archive with the Zip viewer in Windows XP, WinRAR or 7-Zip. Also, it was created exactly the same way as the one for RC 1. If you cannot open, please tell me which program you use.
Scrollbar speed too slow!?
When I released the component, I was aware that the fallback that is used with "Prefer playing track" was bound to lead to some confusion
