We discovered that the build released has a different version of a couple dependencies than the build that was tested (for data feeds, among other things). The solution to this sort of problem is automated builds on a build server. We just haven't prioritized doing that yet.
So, the problem you are having is indeed a defect of the 1.0.0 version. The team is working hard to get out a 1.0.1 version where data feeds work. I expect that will be released within a couple hours, unless unexpected problems arise.
