Hi everyone. We just finished a production workgroup leadership meeting and have an updated spreadsheet showing the major tasks to complete before the release of the version 1.6 beta. Here is a link to the spreadsheet.
As you can see, we have made good progress toward the 1.6 beta release, although more work remains.
For those of you who haven't tried 1.6 lately, you might want to check it out either from the SVN or from the nightly build.
