Announcing the release
Due to the great feedback on the caretaker project at the TYPO3 Conference 2009 in Frankfurt the caretaker team decided to head on to a release.
There are still some tasks to fulfill like integrating new technologies from the current TYPO3 trunk and so we give us another month to reach our first official milestone "Alpha 1".
The due date is October 30th where we will release a first official package that can be used for testing without checking out any subversion sources. This date will also set the mark for the final run towards version 1.0.
We currently plan to release an alpha version every two weeks until the source is ready for being beta which will have a release every week. We don't think that there will be more than 3 betas due to the fact, that the beta phase is dedicated to bugfixing. This also intends, that the features freeze will be set to version "Beta 1".
When everything works out as expected we hope to release version 1.0 in the TER by end of the year.
