The new stroke options are fantastic where you can edit gaps, align and corners. And I love the ability to add layer styles to groups which makes it much easier to work with separate parts in a group that should be treated as one object.

BUT! Why haven't you updated the stroke (layer style) options to include these new awesome stroke features? I would love to be able to make dashed strokes as a layer style that can be applied to groups, and I don't see why this should be excluded as an option.

Thanks for an otherwise great application!

Because the layer style strokes and the vector strokes are entirely different beasts.

The layer style strokes are based on pixels -- and they can't do dashes, circles, etc.

The vector strokes are based on vector shapes -- where we can do dashed lines, circles, etc.
