Our current goal is within the month (aiming tentatively for the first week
in October). We will be doing one more release candidate later this week. The
how is that will be the last candidate before the final release. I can't 100%
guarantee that won't slip if some major bugs surprise us over the next couple
weeks, but those are our current plans.
