Work permitting I hope to get a beta out this month (currently work
does not look permitting). My user base is crying for it. There's
not a whole lot left to do really:
-- Finish up the auth supports (based of SourceForge's)
-- Fix comment/reply threading (currently way too join happy)
-- Finish implementing picon uploads
-- Some DB minor normalising (need to norm the handling of
WikiItems vs Comments/Replies).
-- Bunch of small corner cases surrounding namespace management
(side effects of the broken norming to be fixed above)
-- Summary pages (tag lists, score lists, date lists, view pattern
lists, graph tree models, etc).
... few other small things.

PostgresQL. Its currently very join happy which really needs to be
handled. It slaughters the machine with decent hit rates (the
target box is spidered regularly and fairly heavily).

I don't think I have the UI down. I know I'm not a HIL guy. To an
extent I don't think the UI is as important as getting the access
mode and view flexibility in there first, especially given that I'm
basing off a technical (and therefore somewhat forgiving for the sake
of features) audience.

Soon I hope.
