Hi Hans,

the cross-referencing is excellent new, I will have to play with it very 
soon! In the meantime, here's something which broke with the October 
beta (worked a week ago):

\definelinenote [critical]

\setupnote [critical] 
\setupdescriptions[critical] [display=no,location=serried,distance=.5em]



ut \critical{labore et dolore magna aliquyam erat}, sed diam voluptua. At
clita kasd gubergren


linenotes produce this error:

! Undefined control sequence.

control sequence ...

  1     \definelinenote [critical]
  3     \setupnote [critical] 
  4     \setupdescriptions[critical] 
  8     \starttext
10 >>  ut \critical{labore et dolore magna aliquyam erat}, sed diam 
voluptua. At
11     clita kasd gubergren
13     \stoptext

\@@expanded ->\dodosetreference
\mksomelinereference ... }{\the \linerefcounter }}
\mkstartlinereference ...wstartlinereference {#1}}
\someline [#1]->\mkstartlinereference {#1}
                                           \mkstoplinereference {#1}
l.10 ...ical{labore et dolore magna aliquyam erat}
                                                   , sed diam voluptua. At

which may have something to do with the new reference management, I guess?

All best
