Make no mistake, this is not an easy job; the majority of our work needs to be re-done. Furthermore, given the number of devices we support, all our custom kernels need to be updated and ports re-tested. The good news is we are close. The bad news, if you want to call it that, is that we are not ready for an official release this week (despite our bi-weekly release schedule). Our options were to either release an incremental change to the current base or to postpone the release in order to release something of substance. We obviously chose the latter.
To hold everyone over, we will be kicking off an open beta shortly. The threads for this beta will all be hosted on RootzWiki, so we encourage you all to create accounts there in preparation. The most helpful way to contribute to the project would be to provide thorough bug reports for any issues you encounter with the beta builds. We will have a dedicated beta testing thread in each device’s relevant forum for your feedback.
We have already been asked when our official release date is for the new base. The answer is, when it is done. Given the number of users of Unity who entrust us to provide a stable ROM for their device, it is our responsibility to make sure we do exactly that. In the meantime, those of you who are adventurous can help us work out the kinks via the beta or alternatively continue to use v1.31, which is quite capable in and of itself.
