Official Beta Release?

When do you guys think it'll be? Wikipedia states mid december or early 2009... is this right? I'd like to be able to download a proper beta by mid december.

It's anybodys guess atm, but I think if they are to reach the Holidays 2009 release date then that timeframe would be about right.

Well I hope it is earlier than January but to be honest it doesn't really matter. I'll install the latest build that's available and then just upgrade/re-install to the beta.
