How about let the people do their work which have to be done in the free time?
Did you ever thought about that maibe they have also some other things in real life to do except sitting the whole day and/or night in front of a monitor coding for free?
Most have to go to work, maibe they are married and have family, they also have the right to live a real life, visit some friends and go out to spend some time with friends or anything else.
The time answering questions like this is (sorry to say it that hard way) wasted time because it's a part of the free time they could spend having some ideas how to go a step further to final version.
Some things are not so easy to resolve, we all want a perfect game, we all want a final version without bugs...
To hurry and launch a final version for later realizing that it have some other bugs, is that really what you want to have? I am 100% sure that you wan't that.
I have no problem using RC4 and I am happy with it, sure I also would like the next version and head on what is coming after this. Everyone want that, but it seems that some have more PATIENCE
Seems some of you forgot that the guys which do all those worksarounds are NOT living together, are NOT living even in the same town or country.
A real meeting and talk about what have to be done or finished is not possible, think about that before you go on doing postings like this ones.
Maibe it helps comparing UP against WIN8 for example, there are hundreds of people which are working on it, they have the whole day, the have all the ressources you can imagine to work on it and still, after relase of a "Consumer Preview" which is far away from beta stadium, the need a year to launch the final release.
See? UP 3.0RC Version has been released 26/5/2011 UP 3.0RC4 patch has been released 29/07/2011 don't forget that.
There is NOT an coding army behind that all, they have not server clusters to use for faster work and have no common building they could work at.
So come on, the world turns at the same speed even if you have to use RC4.
When it's done, it's done and you will know it.
