when Beta 1 is publically available...

Post by gLiTcH_ » Fri Jun 09, 2006 4:16 pm

Short question: When Beta 1 is publically available, will it be announced in the mailing list? Or do I need to check periodically on the site/RSS for updates? Thanks!

When Beta is available it will be announced via subspace transmission direct to your neural implant.

Don't have your implant yet? Don't worry. You won't need it for quite a few years yet.

I thought the beta will be released in secret. It's not like users are waiting for it, is it?
Now seriously isn't it obvious?

Excellent post, by several different measures.

I would expect it to be yelled from the roof tops in every manor they can possibly manage. I'm hoping they may even make a special commit to the cvs, removing the die() that gives users the message about no support that so many seem to misunderstand, with a witty comment heralding the arrival of beta.

Oh, and rivaldo, you do realise that is havocovah is right about them not releasing beta for several years, Olympus won't manage to be released on November 30, 2007. Making you wrong. ;)

Hopefully the Good News™ will be on your local evening news. But in case it's not, the the mailing list will likely be used. ;)

Oh, yes, I'll probably be wrong, all right, but either way, I won't be as far off on the date of release as psoTFX was when he said that phpBB3.0 would probably be ready around February of 2005!

And you wonder why the development team doesn't like to give out release estimates...
