I'm not sure I care.  This release is late and there's nothing to talk about, unless we complain and moan about it.  That really helps, too.  I feel your karma...or whatever.
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

But it would be really nice with some information from planetside.
I wont get mad if they say they are really struggling with something and they need more time.... cause then I know what's going on.
It's just good to know, you know.

I agree.  This is what's holding me back from buying a new quad core PC.  No point in doing that until multi-core is supported.  Its also a built-in technology safe-guard as well.  The longer I wait, the better (and faster) the processors will become, so its a mixed deal.

I bought myself a new computer and received it the day after the beta was supposed to be released.
Was really looking forward to a faster render engine and the support for multi-core rendering.
I'll live of course, but as I said: It would be nice with some information.

I'll just wait.  Not saying I'm a saint or all wise.  But, this is the only option I know, outside of working on the program myself and I don't have that option.

Most of the stability issues which were causing the delays have been solved. Some images of transparent water are being rendered right now, and I'll post some completed renders next week.

I expect that this last development phase will enter alpha testing very soon, probably near the end of next week. As you may know, we have a number of alpha testers working with our latest development builds and battling with the inevitable bugs that come with new features. This is a closed process, but we will keep you informed of the kind of feedback we get from the alpha testers as soon as it becomes available so you have some idea when we may be able to release the Beta. We're not going to jump the gun and make another ETA until we're absolutely sure it is ready for wider beta testing.

This latest development phase has been particularly rough, but I'm sorry we didn't plan better for this eventuality. We understand that it has inconvenienced many of you and sincerely appreciate your patience.

I hope you enjoy some of the images we have to show you next week :)

I keep coming every now and again to see if there's any developments, only to find out "a few more weeks".
This app is slowly becoming the "Duke Nukem Forever"...
In any case, good luck for the future release.
