SW have announced that Beta 07 is cancelled this year because they have too much to do finishing 06. Instead of finding bugs in the new release those who signed up for Beta are being reassigned to the early release program for sp5 which will have some923 fixes. There will be an official statement of deep regret and humility in a worldwide webcast on the 6th in which the CEO will outline what we could have had if only some of us had been better behaved. SW staff have been advised to turn up for work as normal and if they cannot actively pursue breaking something they should report to marketing where group therapy has been arranged. People who have already made arrangements to spend their annual holidays bug hunting in the expectation of obtaining a t-shirt will be compensated by going into a draw to be named a favourite customer of a SW VIP for the next podcast.
