Hi all,

According to the commits, the last of the missing beta targets is now  
in svn (install paths). That means we can get ready for an official  
beta release. With beta as in "feature complete, not yet stable". :)

We will need to do some documentation efforts on precisely defining  
what 'feature complete' is though, some 2.5 targets have been  
postponed, some are still limited. Nevertheless, we've made great  
progress, and having a reference build out for bug reports and  
feedback is only important now.

This will be a topic on tomorrow's sunday meeting, also to check if  
there's showstoppers.

For planning I'd propose to svn tag wednesday, do the traditional last  
commit(s), and we'll release it friday or saturday. In the meantime we  
need to work on:

- nice release log
- splash (durian team)
- docs about where 2.5 bottlenecks are still, what works and what's in  
- update doc on roadmap, what will happen 2nd half of this year

I need have to keep a bit space in our planning because of Durian  
(last week of work here, pre-premiere in 8 days), because of the  
horrible heat (30 degrees outside, 30 computers inside), and of course  
the football match final tomorrow evening! :)
