No. It was codenamed Olympus after Olympus Mons and not Mount Olympus.
Yes, about that name. Anyone find it ironic that the next version of phpbb would be named after a long sense EXTINCT volcano... on another planet? Its bad enough that people think the project is dead, but now were all spacecadets.

Olympus Mons is a shield volcano, the result of highly fluid lava flowing out of volcanic vents over a long period of time, and is much wider than it is tall; the average slope of Olympus Mons' flanks is very gradual. In 2004 the Mars Express orbiter imaged lava flows on the flanks of Olympus Mons that appear to be only 2 million years old, very recent in geological terms, suggesting that the mountain may yet have some ongoing volcanic activity.

Ironic? No - pretty much on target. At the time of the renaming of the project to Olympus, I'd say that it was appropriate, given that it had been about 2 million years since some activity took place. Short in geological terms, yes, but not in software development terms...

Yeah, don't worry, Olympus will be released shortly (in geological terms) :lol:
