Well, so far, many of my predictions are on track.

How about the one where I state "12/31/Never"? Classic!

A chemical element with the symbol Au (from the Latin aurum, meaning "shining dawn") and atomic number 79.
Oh, but maybe you meant this.

Being serious.
Number of bug reports in the tracker has been stable for a while, not much work going on in CVS lately, last RC released a month ago... are we getting the bottles ready? :P

I dunno about all of you, but I foresee an RCXVII, an RCAlphaTango, and an RCGaiden before we reach Gold. Bright side: if gold releases within the period of the next few days, my guess for it's release will be dead-on and quite epic.
One day, I'll remember to add my actual signature and avatar. I think.

Hasn't been any indication of that.
They said in the announcement for RC7 they think that's the last RC.

Is it only me who have seen the changes in the support body from RC to stable version in language/en/install.php today about 12 hours ago :idea: :?: :mrgreen:

The version in the database schemas has not been upped in the CVS since relase of RC7, now a month ago. Anyone have any idea why? - Is it a bug :?: :idea: :mrgreen:

i couldn't find any such comment on RC7 announcement...
in other words: every RC except RC7 was "expected" to be the last one... ;)

RC6 then. I forgot 6 and 7 were back to back.

I was referring to this bit
This is the sixth (and hopefully last) release candidate which is meant to become the Gold release if no more critical problems arise.

We know the security audit is one of the last things to be done. There can't be much more.

I also happen to be in a position to possibly know a little more than the announcements ;) ;) But then again, anything can happen, as we all know. I waiting as eagerly as the rest of you.
