"Despite a heroic effort by developers and testers, we have not
been able to reach Beta release criteria by the time of the Go / No
Go meeting. There are still unresolved bugs and unknown test
results. Because of this we've enacted a 1 week slip of the Beta
release date. This does not mean we will be pulling in a bunch of
"nice to have" updates, we will instead be concentrating only on
release blocking issues in order to produce an RC that achieves
Beta release criteria."
