The next release has been set to this November, but we need to push it another week or so. It's not because we want to push it, but we have had some issues with computers seriously crashing and just a general shortage of spare time.
We wan't to push the release so we can make sure the RSS/ATOM and BlogML importer will work perfectly and that the overall quality of the release will be as high as possible. Also, we wan't to make sure that we fully support Mono out of the box without any tweaks are needed. Hope you understand.
