Jack,

As a practical matter, no.  There are literally hundreds of things that
won't be fixed in the beta, and I need time right now to focus on making
sure that those things that are to be fixed are.

I do hope to come up with some list of those things that have been discussed
on this list, but won't be fixed or improved.  However, this too will have
to wait at least until we've posted a release candidate.

- Peter

Hi Peter:

So we can get a sense of closure, can you come up with a to-do list of what
won't fit into the beta, and what we can see on the nightly autobuilds after
the release of 10.5.

Regards

Jack
