It may be wise to remember that although Vector is still active the downloads from the above link are test builds and as such not official release candidates. they should be downloaded at your own risk for entertainment or testing purposes. to suppose that the team are too busy to post a release candidate would be strange indeed.

That said the recent test builds are very good

Actually, the test builds I've tried have been very good for months and months.  What's the hold up at this point?  What earth shattering problem is preventing the latest build from being called gold?

Years and years is almost more acurate. May be this distro can be called Perperual Release Candidate Distro.

I believe in past years it was called dynamite or something like that.

I kind of expect the current code is being assessed by Vec, if the return was fact.

My GUESS would be that source locations would have to be changed and tested and  extra applications as well prior to any official release.

looking forward to it still and hope any issues..personal or political have been cleared up at long last.

then again perhaps it's just my imagination running away with me.

We're close. We've run into a slight snag with bluetooth which should be ironed out this week.

Bear in mind, too, there's only a few individuals working on this and it's not their full time job.

I think all the development team are doing a hell of a good job, been cranking out RC after RC in very short time and have been very responsive in addressing issues. As previously mentioned all RC's have been good. Well done!

Not much...
The biggest thing holding us up now is populating the stable repositories.  I think everything is where it should be at this point, should have a final build soon
