We have a test package ready! Look in the "Stand-alone Testing" section of the forum for the download link & other important information. If you can't see that section of the forum then you aren't a tester.
So, what does this mean for the general public? It means we have reached a milestone as far as the stand-alone project is concerned. But we won't be releasing the SA right away.
There are still a few files that must be replaced, content that needs polishing, not to mention the bugs we'll likely encounter. Naturally, all of this will take some time. I promised the SA in 2008 & so you shall have it before 2009. That's all I can say. Stay tuned pilgrims!
For the pic-o-the-week I've posted a screenshot of me & Tequila. We are the first to officially test the Stand-alone! WE NOW HAVE THE MAC HELP WE NEED. MUCHAS GRACIAS TO EVERYONE WHO OFFERED THEIR SERVICES!
