I can predict when the beta comes out...it's coming out...now.

Now.



Nnnnnnnnnnnow



just joking...it's going to be....nnnnnnnow.

Surely it'll still take a while even after the current bugs are crushed? Don't the developers have to sit around in meetings and drinking coffe? :lol:

We could try using the force to influence all the bugs to go away ;)

Um... Master, the code is not a living thing... the force does not surround it... must be those darn Yterich creatures.
I sense the dark-side surrounds the bugs. Difficult to see, the future is.

It is their birthday. I suspect they are trying to get it out today as well for that reason. And who can blame them? Would be a great thing for them and phpbb as a whole if they can do this because of the significance of this day to phpbb and development. Heck even SHS reported a bug today.

I hope they can do it for the reasons i stated and as well to help avoid the bashing/endless questions on stalled/crappy development time which i am sure will ensue if this doesnt get released today.

I'll admit i still have a few doubts that this will get released today. I hope i am wrong though for the sake of myself, the developers and everyone else. As said i cant honestly think of a better day to do this then today because of it being phpbb birthday.

Yes, today would be great. Anyway, I think we're really really close even if they don't make it today, I mean there's only 4 bugs left and I think we never had less than ten until today... Upgrade scripts should be ready by now, as the bugs in the last weeks I think didn't require any db changes (could be wrong), so once they get rid of the last bugs they should be able to release beta. I know some bugs will still be posted, but come on, that's what betas are for, they'll have RCs to try and make bug-free.

It would really be a perfect day for a beta release and when I try olympus on my test machine it runs quite well.

However when beta is released the next question of some users wouldn't be "when will beta be released" but "when will final be released" or even moan about errors etc etc.
