This is a general question regarding the release of WP 2.5. Since it is still in beta I figured it is suitable to post this here. If not please kindly move it and accept my apologies.
I've been keeping an eye on the release schedule for WP 2.5 for several weeks. I have been all excited for the release and each week in my podcast I have counted down to the 10th for the release.
The 10th came and is now over on the eastern coast of America. WP 2.5 hasn't come. It was two hours late and now I check to see the ETA has been moved back a week.
I know there's a lot of active tickets but I am curious as to why it is being delayed. At the heart of this question is a curiosity on the final stages of the process for releasing a new version of WP.
I know that 2.5 is a major release and as such requires a lot of work. I'm not trying to complain or point fingers at anyone. Instead I have a desire to become informed.
Does anybody know why 2.5 is delayed?
