Public beta release planned for 2008.0 release cycle

| Public beta releases play a major role in the Release Engineering team's
| revamped plans for 2008.0. Releng lead Chris Gianelloni said he hoped beta
| releases would increase community participation as well as the quality of the
| final release. These feature-complete public betas will require the earlier
| development of release materials, another component of the 2008.0 changes. To
| ensure sufficient time for beta testing, a mandatory 2-week testing period
| will follow the beta release. ¬* ¬* ¬*

| the forthcoming release. The same people are hard at work doing the same job
| they were doing two weeks ago.
