mile·stone Audio pronunciation of "milestone" ( P ) Pronunciation Key (mlstn)
n.

1. A stone marker set up on a roadside to indicate the distance in miles from a given point.
2. An important event, as in a person's career, the history of a nation, or the advancement of knowledge in a field; a turning point.
Metaphorically, milestone is used to denote reaching an identifiable stage in completion of something other than a physical journey, as in project management, world events, and the like.
The key being project management, i.e. in terms of management of 3.0 development, we've hit the third milestone.

There used to be a public document saying there were going to be 4 milestones, however that seems to have disappeared. How many there are now I don't know, but at least it's an indication that we are closer.

2: ms2 and ms3.
if your question meant "how many ms are there going to be", i think the canned answer to the "when will it be ready" question applies: there are going to be as many as there are going to be...

I think the original plan had 4 milestones, but I also think they scrapped the whole milestone idea a while ago

That's what I thought, but I wasn't sure.

Two posts up from yours, it's on the previous page ;)
Now don't you feel stupid for asking an answered question.
