There are a number of projects hanging out in the alpha, beta, release candidate status, which should be in the release category.

If your project status should be updated, please do so as soon as practical.

I personally answer a lot of questions based on my VFPX articles and conference session white papers on this topic. There are some people who won't try out projects that are not at least a release candidate. One such instance is Desktop Alerts (sorry Kevin for picking on your project, it just so happens I am working on this one tonight). This project is considered a beta release, yet I have used it in production apps for several years. It is time to move it!

If your project is alpha and needs to be beta, make it so. If your beta project is really a release candidate, make it so.

Thanks for listening, and thanks for acting, and thanks for all your hard work for everyone in the Fox Community.

Great timing. FYI - GoFish 4.2 is nearing Production Release. Expect it by year-end.
