There have been several break downs in communication here.

1)the original string freeze was not announced two Sunday's ago.  This,
and the fact that fewer issues had been solved than we wanted, lead Sean
to push the release back by 1 week.

2)Sean announced the new string freeze on this last Sunday only to the
devel list.  I did not realize this untill Wednesday.  This gave you all
far too little time to react.

3)Sean still has the conversation window in an incomplete state.  This
appears to have pushed the release back once again.  No emails were sent
regarding this.  

I am not sure right now when the release is actually going to happen.
