Since we're in beta stage, the software is feature complete. My guess is beta 2 will come pretty soon, some major bugs have been fixed and they don't want a lot of duplicate reports. But there is also the security tracker, who knows how many bugs have been reported there.

For the final release, there is probably more to it. Bugs, documentation, support, website etc., everything has to be prepared. Don't expect it in the next few months.

You mean that styles are already free to spread? And I can download and install some skin?

I meant what spambot said. But there are a few development styles in the [Olympus] Styling forum(one of my own is in there).

Um, no, I think you just forgot to wash again. ;)

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

Hey, don't get all conclusion-jumpy on us now... There are still quite a few "New [Not reviewed]" items in the bug tracker. Maybe the developers need to spend another week (or another month) on things before they proceed with declaring the next beta...

They changed some langugage texts (they changed first beta to beta) and changed the version string in the database to 3.0B2 so I suspect that beta 2 is not too far away. Usually such things (at least the config change) are done while preparing a release
