We don't have a set release date. The second beta is now out to Chater Members which means a lot of progress is being made...once we get a bit closer we'll announce a public beta.

Sorry, but, if you'd been around here a little longer and read a little more of the stuff, you'd understand that this question has been asked too many times in too many different threads, so there's really no topic to stick to apart from the only two approved answers I can think of:

1. When it's ready.
2. We're not sure.

Yeah, the SMF team doesn't want to be like a real software development group and give a new release date every 14.3 minutes.

This question has been asked about 20x this month and the answer never changes. Why don't you try and mix it up [Unknown]. Good replies to this question :

1. It is already ready but everytime somebody asked when it would be released we pushed it back 1 hour. It will now be release in 2012.

2. It is posted elsewhere on the forum I refuse to answer the same question twice.

3. This will be announced and displayed in a prominent area when the date is known, we are not trying to keep it a secret.

This list could go on forever, but you could at least try and amuse us while we wait. I mean it isn't like you have anything else to do.

When I give answers like that people get mad at me.  I was thinking of saying that I'm pretty sure it'll be done before you die, but then I get people going suicidal :P. (j/k)

And yeah.. err, I can go post a date in the administrator-only area and then start saying - quite truthfully - that it is posted somewhere on the forum... :P.

3 <-- good answer, my favorite.  Actually true.

Yeah, my job is your guys' amusement.  Start paying me for it then :P.

Again I'll say... if you want to be notified when it's available... just register.  You will be notified, I'll make sure of that.

The release date is probably around next week sometime, but they don't want to say anything so that people will still buy charter memberships =p

but you'll still get the next betas before they are released to the general public, plus personal support.
