The DEV team will announce the BETA release of Olympus. But, they will not provide a release date.

When it finally is released, Olympus will go through a few BETA cycles before becomming a Release Candidate, after a few of those, then it will finally be a "Final Release" by the time everything has been finalized and all is stable.

No forum system is "fail-safe" at all. 2.0.XX still has some bugs and possible security issues granted and so will Olympus. That's why the Developers rely on the users to report any bug threats or possible security risks and all that.

It's been said many many times... the DEV Team will not set a release date. It's in the 2.1, 2.2 FAQ that's a global announcement.. This is so that they won't be rushed into getting Olympus released and make it as stable as possible.

I took him to mean that they will provide announcements for the release of beta(s), the RC(s), and the final 3.0, but that they will not announce any release dates for any of them before they are released.

And this is consistent with the notion that the devs and support team have recently (this year) indicated no more guesstimates for release dates, zilch, nada, Nein danke!, etc.

I think we will be lucky to even see a 3.0 features lists before the final 3.0 release, because even that is floating now with all the other potential community feature contributions that "may" make it into 3.0 or possibly not (i.e. some may make it in or maybe all are postponed until 3.2+) and it all just "depends" as the devs have recently noted on here...
