Thanks.  That's good to hear and most reassuring to us.

But any chance of just an approximate date?  Order of magnitude?
"About two days"?
"About two weeks"?
"About two months"?

Season with as many cautious "No promise", "We are tentatively hoping to" 
sorts of phrases as you wish!  I'll sympathise with the spirit of such a
guess and estimate. 

But an approximate time bracket, and indication of whether or not this
might be an alpha/beta really would be useful, in both our planning and
our current fire-fighting!  (We're on the verge of backtracking to 2.0.7
(and I suppose I'd have to work on making that 2.0.9 ...))
