Hate to disappoint you, but I saw something the other day that said Alice 3.0 would go into very limited Alpha testing in the Fall of 2008 and Beta testing in the Spring of 2009. Apparently only instructors at CMU and one other university will be allowed to participate in the Alpha testing in 2008:(

Alice in 2009?
 
A general observation on software releases - by anybody (including Adobe, Apple and Microsoft). Beta testing generally actually starts about six months later than the time estimate [I]at the start of alpha [/I]- and uncovers enough problems that the final release is delayed even further.

If the Alice team can somehow break that "tradition" I hope they share their approach - it would be an even greater contribution than Alice itself. :)

Well beta testing should happen (nobody want's a buggy alice) but i'm concerned about a 2009, 2010 release date... why, well ancient myan calandars, nostridamus, and all those other things i cant spell predict a terrible,
terrible, planet wide event centered on the year 2012
that means only 2 to 3 years to enjoy alice 3.0 :(. if the so called 'polar shift' doesn't occor than be happy... untill global warming in 2050:o.

PS.
It might seem weird,
it might offend...
but we fight with our honor,
we'll fight to the End!!

*wait a sec, if I'm dead, i cant be disappointed:eek:*
