To give you a sense of where the team stands on this release, consider the following :
• First Release Candidate due out in mid-January
• Code Freeze scheduled for Dec 12th
• We're now at lucky promoted build #13
• 200+ bugs already fixed
While it gets harder to get new bugs fixed every day as we approach the stabilization phase, it's not too late to provide feedback in the form of bug votes or general comments on the current promoted builds. And remember - it's never a bad idea or a bad time to submit a bug or an RFE.
