I think this should have been going here. Ok, I don't want to rush things too 
much and as long as we keep compatible to KDE 2.2 there's no reason to rush 
anyway. Let's get things going and when the time has come we'll see how it 
looks like to publish a developer-test-alpha version then. I didn't mean to 
push out an unfinished version but show the progress, give users a chance to 
test it and get some feedback; that's usually what you're doing with a 0.1, 
0.2 whatever release and that's what we have been doing in the beginning of 
KDE as well. Anyway, times have changed and of course we don't want to ruin 
our name but getting more developers interested in writing plugins or 
enhancing them was the idea behind a test version.

sorry, I vote against a preview release until at least end of October. IMHO
Gideon is not yet usable and stable enough to present it, so if you put a
release out now many people will just be disappointed.

We're not a company, we just produce better code at less costs.
