News on Community Server v2.1 and the new blog skin
Some of you may have noticed that a few days ago Alex posted an update on Community Server v2.1's progress. One thing it mentions is that it will be released July 2006. This has produced a certain amount of clammouring on the forums, and should be noted that it isn't set in stone. Release dates are very hard to predict if you don't have a hard requirement (like releasing to coincide with a conference or something). So July is somewhat of a worse-case scenario. Plus, we always prefer at least about a month of betas before reaching a final release phase, so a public version is not very far off.
Other thing worth noting is that the CS Announcements blog is now an attractive new blog skin called Paperclip that will be included in CS v2.1 with a couple of varients. I like it so much, it almost makes me want to dump my current skin!
