I learned that Windows 8 requires that device drivers be digitally signed in order to be installed. So when I try to install the Arduino driver, it doesn't work. There is a workaround that disables the Windows requirement, but I was wondering if there were plans for Arduino to issue a signed version of the driver.

Arduino 1.0.4 and higher now have signed drivers for Windows 8.
