it seems lately that the forum has almost no attraction and the project finished with beta8. The SPAMMERs are the only one who contribute some posts and nobody is using Echo at all.
It seems - but I actually know that you are working hard on your projects and thus can not keep track with everything happening here.
I vote to release the Echo3 RC1, the current trunk version is quite stable and all issues for the rc1 are resolved. Well I also know that the Echo3 Extras project has a lot of issues, but thats just another project with some additional components. It doesn't need to be in RC1 at the same time.
So please release the Echo3 RC1 to the community to show the nexapp.Echo is still alive and you care about us.
