Plans are quite good defined, but there are few additional problems.
Release v1.0-RC3 is almost complete, but there are still some
documentation and cbctl issues, because of Slawek's (and mine) leak
I'm not sure if I want to made release 1.0 for FreeBSD 4.x, because
most of my machines are running FreeBSD 5.x now and I'll not be able
to maintain this version of cerb.
All I can do is to push release 1.0-RC3 without any guarantees.
Long term plans are of course releated to porting cerb to FreeBSD 5.x.
There are some hard points here. First of all I'm waiting for
audit implementation from TrustedBSD. I hope I'll be able to find
some helpful functionality and stop doing VM-tricks in cerb.
What I don't want to do is:
1. Create release 1.0 for FreeBSD 4.x without futher support.
2. Create release 1.0 without complete documentation.
3. Port cerb to 5.x with VM-tricks inside.
4. Push release 1.0 without good testing. This is security software,
I don't want to end up with something that will decrease security
of your system.

Is it only me who thinks, that 5.x isn't stable yet, an upgrading to
it is not worth it?
C'mon there is ready code for 4.x, I think it's pretty good, only few
bugs should have been fixed and it should be enough, no new features,
this only slows down final release.
