Hi everyone,

We successfully made it past API freeze last week and have been 
squashing lots of bugs. Thanks again to Eli, Justin, Simon, and others 
for helping with QA and reporting bugs. Keep it up!

We were due to release Fluid 0.1 tomorrow. Looking at the task list, 
we've got one more blocker bug to fix and a bit more cleanup of our 
documentation and wiki space. Since this is our first release, we're 
expecting that the process of packaging it all up for public consumption 
will take a bit longer than usual.

Given this, I've made the difficult decision to push off our release 
again. While we could probably have rushed to tie up loose ends and get 
it out, we really want to ship a bundle of useful code, examples, and 
documentation. A few extra days will ensure we've got a well-documented 
and integrated release.

As a result, we're now aiming for a release date of *Friday, November 
30, 2007*. Just in time for the upcoming Sakai conference in Newport Beach!

As always, you can track our progress at the 0.1 Release Status page:


While this is a discouraging delay, I really appreciate your patience 
and apologize for the inconvenience. Let me know if you have any 
comments or questions, or if you can lend a hand with the release
