Some of you have been wondering why there wasn’t a release yet. Things were looking pretty good with the 8/ 4 cycle. Well, the first rule of release was, is and probably always will be, release day is when the release is done. And somebody has to actually do it as well. Around the end of the cycle there was nobody available to work on the remaining items in the milestone and as a consequence the release was pushed back a little.
