Counting Down With You...

I would say it feels like Christmas Eve... but instead of feeling like a kid waiting for great new toys... I (we) feel more like a new Santa!  Will our toys be well recieved?  Will people like them?  Will they be good enough?  Will folks complain if they find them imperfect?  I feel like biting my nails just thinking about it.

Yes.  Yes.  Yes.  And Yes!

It's always hard to throw your personal work out to the hungry crowd and hear the unfiltered, often unrestrained feeback!  Much will be good, some not so good... we are getting used to that.  Any of you who are parents will know what I mean... new babies are at once the most beautiful things you've ever seen and yet also kind of squishy and gross (except for your own, of course).  Well, DotNetNuke 2.0 (Beta I) is our baby.

With less than a day to go before our official beta release, there is still much activity going on.  Scott McCulloch & Josh Weinstein are cleaning up our team and GDN public issue logs, preparing for the inevitable onslaught over the next couple of weeks.  Phil Beadle is making final arrangements for our dedicated beta team.  Shaun Walker, Geert Veenstra & Joe Brinkman are (I think) the final ones tweaking code (and some of them are big tweaks).  Shane Colley is writing and planning press release material for the beta and general releases.  Several people are still testing like crazy including myself, Salaro Golestanian, Lorraine Young, Russ Johnson, etc.  And a bunch of other folks are doing our normal forum support, preparing for 2.1 scope discussions, planning enhancements to team structure, writing documentation, etc.  Holy cow we need more help!  But that is another column...

So whether we actually release at 12:01 AM (PST) or whether it's more like noon... tomorrow is the day.  Happy Valentine's day... may you all have better things to do than download DotNetNuke *smile*.  But you can know that we are... counting down with you.
