Well, if you've been keeping up with the nightly builds, they're getting there, but I'd estimate at least another month. They've still got stuff like "Hey, we need <this> and <that> here, who's going to do it?" out there and visible. That, and a good bit of functionality (like configuring plugins) still doesn't work.

The page recently changed to indicate .6 out in March. Maybe they took a while to come up with a new name.

Besides, Phoenix's releases are bug-driven, not date-driven. This means that they really will not release anything before they've done everything they've planned to get done for a release. Last I built Phoenix from CVS (this was more than a month ago, though, IIRC) it was unstable, broken (type ahead find didn't work, and it's something I can't live with anymore) and ugly. Hm. I think I'll compile a new build during the night and see what it's shaped up to lately.

Built mine on 9th march and it worked smoothly (incl. type-ahead).
Just remember to use the updated ebuild in the phoenix-cvs thread

You could always use their nightly builds and not compile it yourself. Agreed, not as cool and quick as your own compilation, but who wants to compile phoenix every day (or even every week) for themselves? Also, it helps in backing out a build if it's too buggy to work with.

Yes, I could have.
But I left sufficient clues obviously...10 seconds: I'm impressed!
Next time, I'll give less hints and make it more challenging for you, okay :wink:
