Hi,
It was intended to be released by now, but a few additional changes have been added to the desired features which myself and the other developers are still working through. Hopefully these will be done for a release candidate in the next 2 or 3 weeks. The length of time between this and a final release will depend on the level of testing and number of bugs that are found in the RC.
