you should know by now they are not going to answer that......there are no release dates for any part of this project and that includes the BETA. It will be released when they feel it is ready to be released as a beta :D

We are currently not able to checkin our changes due to sf's CVS being down since the 30th march. :(
SF Status Page wrote: ( 2006-04-03 05:55:21 - Project CVS Service ) On 2006-03-30 the developer CVS server had a substantial system failure. Due to the implementation of the CVS service, there is a single point of failure with multiple points of recovery (there is more than one data source we could potentially recover from if there is any data loss as a result of the failure). This outage currently affects developer CVS access directly, but we have disabled tarball updates and data syncs from the developer CVS server to the anonymous pserver/ViewCVS hosts as an additional level of precaution. Our main focus since the outage was detected has been to safegaurd all data on the developer CVS server as well as possible. We are currently attempting to backup the data on the host, which is taking longer than we initially anticipated it would, but is a necessary step to fully safegaurd the host's data. Next, we are going to perform some data validation to ensure the data set appears valid. Pending successful completion of those steps, we'll reenable developer CVS access. A few days after, we'll reenable CVS tarballs and syncs to anonymous CVS. In the mean time, we're currently advancing plans for a CVS architecture change based upon the knowledge we gained during Subversion deployment to eliminate the single point of failure that developer CVS currently has, add horizontal scalability and overall service resiliance. However, we still do not have an estimate on when developer CVS services will be restored, but we have been, and currently are actively working to restore access to CVS. We appreciate your patience with us while we work to properly resolve this major outage.

I knew something was up. Just one of those occasional disasters that interfere with the continued forward momentum of phpBB's development. Remember when the server's stats package was hacked into back in early 2005?

[less then constructive criticism]
And to think they were only one commit from the first beta, Oh well guess this means there will be another year of pre-alphas. :lol:
