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.
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%
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.
