Giving out dates was a mistake in the first place and they were not realistic. Things are moving forward, but there's still a lot to do in practically all areas of R3. The difficult part is testing the massive array of features that R3 consists of. I don't know yet when the alpha will be ready for release as beta, but "soon" should probably count as some time before 2008, but definitely not this or next week. :-) When it will be released is entirely up to Carl. Some stats: The 70th alpha release was put out yesterday, right now at a pace of about 1 release per day. There are 294 bug reports in the bug tracker of which, probably 75% are solved. There are at least 14 people working actively on R3, with 7-8 more inactive people, busy with other work. VID3 is currently consisting of roughly 128 kb source code. -- Regards, Henrik Mikael Kristensen R3 Team
