I understand that because it's designed for digital exposure, the paper itself is a fixed grade. Used as designed, you would adjust the curves in software to fit the paper.

From a purely APUG-value perspective though, I'm intrigued that this means possible availability of a different grade of Galerie FB than current offerings of only Grade 2 and 3... I've heard it's about Grade 4.

It's necessary to handle in the dark, as it's Panchromatic, which will vary the darkroom routine a bit, but there's nothing wrong with a little variety.
