There has been significant progress towards releasing 0.5 since last week's meeting. All the remaining open issues for the Multi-User project were closed, the first Release Candidate was cut, and ~50 bugs were raised against it. Those bugs have all been triaged and assigned to either be closed before this release or punted to a later release. Already ~40 bugs have been fixed, we're back down to just a handful of bugs, and RC2 is expected to be cut shortly*.
