Potential SQL Refactor Bug...

I'm a registered owner of SQL Refactor. We're using v1.10.2.0 (the latest version).

When doing a table rename it appears to lose some of the properties of the table.

For example, if I were to rename my table in SQL Server Management Studio and my table name were [dbo].[Users] and I wanted to rename to [dbo].[Members] the refactor would generate the script to execute in a transactional context (as it should). However it drop the following items and not re-create them:
1. All check constraints that we've added to the table. Note that the default constraints (default values) are kept just fine.
2. Foreign key constraint extended properties (such as descriptions).

Any thoughts or potential workarounds?

    What is the current status of this bug?

    I just realized that my Check Constraints were getting dropped when I did the Smart Rename. This is a big deal! Especially since it is easy to not realize that these things have been dropped.

    Please advise regarding the status. Is it fixed in v1.1?
