Great news from Pedro Alves and Pentaho ...
After two release update announcements and over 1 month after my initial estimate (mid-october... yeah, right!), it's done!
This was a huge collaborative effort from a lot of people - internally, from all areas of Pentaho, and externally, from the community!
Based out of the Pentaho 5.0.1 codebase, we are releasing what we hope to be a coherent and quality release to fulfill the needs of our user base.
Now... if you excuse me, I'm signing out. Getting this release out the door plus the fact that Portugal just qualified for the Football World Cup (the kind of football were you actually kick a ball with your foot, my American friends), if you see a guy celebrating in the streets totally drunk, it's most likely me! \o/
