I didn't reply right away, but I've been thinking about this.

I doubt that I'll have everything, enough to call it a release version of ooDialog, ready by then.
But, I could incorporate the switchOODialog into the distribution.  That would allow users of ooRexx 4.2.0 on Windows to switch back and forth between the release version of ooDialog and the beta version of ooDialog. 
switchOODialog itself seems to work well.  There have been a number of downloads and no one has reported any bugs in switching back and forth between versions.
But, that would include beta code in the distribution, although indirectly.  The beta ooDialog files are not visible to the user, are not on the file system, until the user specifically switches.  That may not be acceptable to others.  Which is fine with me.  I'm not particularly pushing this, just trying to think of something that would give the release a little extra.
