Hey Justin,

Thanks for the update! So, for those of us working on the release, what does this change in schedule mean? We should remain focused on component accessibility fixes and demos in preparation for the next round of AEGIS demos Jan is doing next week.

Over the next two days, our goals are:

 1. Improve the screen reader user experience of Uploader by adding additional ARIA (Mike & Colin)
 2. Style the native HTML 5 file input in a nice way (James & Justin)
 3. More testing and suggestions for improvement (Anastasia & Heidi)

 1. Improve the new jQuery UI tooltip plugin so it works better with keyboard-based navigation (Justin & Michelle)
 2. Make the Pager and its demo work great in Firefox and NVDA (Justin & Golam)
 3. Tweak and tidy up the demo (Jonathan & Colin)

Once these features are in place, we'll freeze the code and branch it into the incubator where Jan can have a stable version show off while we move ahead with release preparations in trunk.

Additional Reorderer fixes are lagging behind a little. Rather than emphasizing any rushed fixes, I think Jan will be able to incorporate into his demo some of the interesting conceptual questions we are still figuring out. Anything new for Reorderer that can be finished in time is great, but the pressure is off here.

Once the AEGIS demos are in order, here's a rough outline of our next steps for the Infusion 1.3 release:

 * Preview-level support for HTML 5 in both demo and server modes
 * New HTML for Uploader
 * New Pager demo based on the Tools wireframe Jonathan circulated recently
 * Reorderer a11y fixes
 * Any last fixes and testing to Builder
 * General release tasks, including tweaking the dependency modules
 * Documentation!

We have been pushing forward, but just haven't quite finished getting in all of the updates and improvements yet. To that end we are extending our release date to make sure we finish these up and put in a full round of QA.
