If you are impatient then go to the Beta area of the forum and download the beta2 now and try it:

not brave enough (more likely lacking the resources and time) to try the beta.

But I am excited as well to see the new version.

Just throw back a few beers ;D, make a backup, and install. Maybe you should do the backup first.  ::)

Impatient no, looking forward to it, yes. Right now 4.8 is working just fine and I'm a firm believer in if it ain't broke don't fix it.   ;D

4.8 will be supported for a while even after the final version of 5 is released so I'm planning to wait for the feedback before rushing in. On dialup, downloads over 7-8 MB usually mean a major commitment and I only want to do it once.  :)

I am looking forward to it though.

They are not promises but just plans or schedules, which can be changed depending on how things turn out.  Some people constantly ask the developers of the release date and, if the developers answer these questions based on "if everything goes well," the words are taken as promises somehow..., which doesn't appear to be fair to my eyes.  :(

Furthermore, if I remember correctly, Vlk told something like...it wouldn't be released before the mid November.  There are so many questions about release dates, so, please search the boards...I used to do it for the others but I'm rather tired of it, to be honest.

I'd say it's shame since you could make a good beta-tester.  ;)

Why, thanks for the sentiment, and I'm pretty curious, but there are quite a few better beta testers than I'd be already making significant contributions. Doubtful I'd find any more issues than have already been found.
