Not surprised. I haven't seen very many issues in Alpha testing. The contributors have done an amazing job on the course. Excited to see Mandarin graduate to Beta.

!!!!!! How exciting!! That'll give us alpha testers enough time to clear out any leftover bugs left in the course before its release!

I hope they actually plan on releasing it then, now that they've gotten us all hyped up for it. Usually the release date gets pushed back a couple times. One language used to be set to released on 2099.

I think I saw once Korean with a release date of 9999

    Korean would not even be the same language at that point.

    xD.

    I didn't see that, but I did see Soedori write in an incubator update:

    ''2099 is just a placeholder, of course we won't be released in 2099, we'll be released in 9999!''

    Wow that seems too good to be true ! So fast ... I expect that they will postpone it by 1-2 weeks like sometimes they've done with some courses, but of course it would be amazing if it's really on beta on november 16th.
