Still no release if the final version. Beta testing still in progress. Marketing is getting a lot of calls about when the product will be out in the wild. Frankly we don't know. The system is functioning perfectly in the lab, it's just not ready to see the light of day.

New release date scheduled for November 3. If the project isn't finished by then we are going to release it as is. So far have had 3 release candidates go gold before being yanked back.

Did get a final specification on port orientation, it will be type-F.

Scheduled release date. We were all set to go, but the R&D says it isn't ready yet. Our build environment is bursting at the seems.

The framework for the project is completed, as are the beginnings of all of the major subsystems. The maintainer of our development environment reports that the project has been continually kickstarting since Mother's day.

The architect for the system has tentatively elected to make BABY conform to the female specification standards for interfaces and ports. Marketing has selected the name for the product to be "Alessandra".

So far we have all of the underpinnings and foundation classes laid in, and running on the testbed. The first checks are coming back from the testing department a.ok. (The HEAD revision is on the left of the diagram.)
