When a final release?
Hi, will this software be kept in perpetual beta or a final release sooner or later will be released?
It will be released when it's ready.
It isn't very near complete at this stage, in spite of the fact that this is some of the fastest development I have ever seen.
Unlike GMail did, it will not spend years in "beta." However, before it can spend any time in beta at all, it must first reach that stage - which it has not. To be beta, it needs to be essentially feature-complete and need only serious bug-squashing. Developers were hoping to make the next release after TP3 the beta release - but it just wasn't possible. So, with luck, the next major release after the current TP4, will be beta.
