For the record, though...can we get a "official" status update (the latest is Oct 21!), or even a list of things that need to be done? I'm itching to see a beta, (and I think a lot of other folks are too), and if there are docs that need to be cleaned up, bug fixes, or whatever, I'm happy to help. Right now, the answers to my questions are probably here...just scattered hither and yon amongst the threads *grin*. A status update, and even a "Bug/Doc/Fix Squashing List" (ie, what needs to happend before beta, that non-core developers could help with) would be great.
Hope things are well!!
