As I have posted on the shoutbox:
@Prozac88: Staff and users of this site are not 24/7 connected bots. We are spending our free time in answering to users such as you, who have got any kind of dobut (I will mention I have not read your topic yet). We are not professional coders/developers, so, depending on the dificulty of what you are asking, it can take some days a thread can be solved. I hope you understand that Icy Phoenix is not a site where staff - and ofc, regular users - are obligated to stay answering to others, but we choose to do so on behalf of other tasks we can do with our RL time. So if you are feeling ignored, the bump restriction is setted to 24 hours. When that time has passed by, I do not care if a user posts a reply with the only text "bump" on it. I guess other mods don't. Althought, using it for spamming or harrasing is another matter, and it shall be reviewed. I will have a look on your thread later.
Regardering your question, templates are sometimes kept untill the next stable release, as this will be. There are unofficial information sources that point next stable to be released very soon, a long time before 2009's autumn.
We still have to do some checks on the RCs.
opps, revealed too much intel today
@spydie: We are not going final, as final looks like "not longer under development", and AFAIK
has not stayed about not continuing with IP development. We will just release a supported version with more improvements than the one before
