Summer in Europe July (hopefully.

The end of April was nice and warm in the UK, certainly where I live central heating off; then bang all this week has been fairly cold temps below zero on two nights close to zero on another. There was me thinking this global warming is nice warm weather in April. Hopefully Summer will be warm and last more than a week ;D

So Summer is perhaps not a good term to use for a global product, so a best guess would be July/August and fingers crossed.

One thing for sure you will hear about it on the forums first (beta release, etc.), a little before any planned release.

You're welcome, that however is my best guess, which could be wide of the mark. A lot depends on how much of a problem any of the functions planned for it are, such as the boot-time to be available for 64bit versions of XP, Vista and win7.

I could never understand why the people on North Hemisphere uses the seasons to talk to whole world.
Here, is the opposite of the North: when you have summer, we're in winter... and so on.
Why don't you speak on monthly basis?

Sorry guys. The current plan is late August / early September, but as always, this is just a plain - not an official release date. Take with a grain of salt.

Thanks
