Yeah man, it's gonna be a while. They have to fix all the bugs in this and new ones will come in all the time. Then they have to correct the ACP grammar/language and redundant links.

Then they have to do a US EN language pack, create tutorials, FAQs, retool the current phpBB forums, on and on. I'd say late 2006 would be optimistic really.

Errr.... I don't belive so.
create tutorials, FAQs
I believe there is already a dedicated documentation team who have been working on this for some time,
, retool the current phpBB forums
I can't really see why this would hold back the release (or what you mean, to be honest)

I'm not saying anything about the RC release date (for the simple reason that I don't know), but I would like to imageine the Beta stages being fairly short, given the massive ammount of bugfixing that has gone on pre-beta.

And why are we discussing this anyway? It's a satirically minded thread, and there is a beta to play with.

Damn.

Yes, I agree with you Dan,

I don't think anybody needs to be thinking about RC right now, we just got Beta.
Everyone needs a few months to play with it at least before anybody mentions RC again!

I think he means they need to get phpBB.com updated to 3.0, and the new style.

Personally, I think the website team will handle that.

Oh, and I agree, we should stop mentioning the R word.

You might want to check the bug list. When I checked it last night, there were ~45 bugs. When I looked again this morning, there were ~70. :)
You can never go home again... but I guess you can shop there.

DragonlordP should have locked the topic right after making his first post and included appropriate emoticon(s). Satire and sarcasm don't translate well in written form. Now we'll have another 50-page dippy thread...
