New 5.0 ShipdateWe've decided to push the Frontier 5.0 shipdate back to Friday, January 30.
We believe 5.0fc1 is solid, and that it will be the actual shipping 5.0. However, we made some changes in the 5.0fc1 release, and feel it's prudent to wait a couple of days to determine if we've broken anything essential in the last few builds.
Our goal is to have a version that's stable thru Frontier 5.1. It's going to be very broadly distributed compared to previous releases, so it's worth it to let it slip by 48 hours to be extra sure of the quality.
See http://www.scripting.com/frontier5/ for details on the release process.
PS: FC stands for Final Candidate.
