Still beta! Why?

Our team cannot initialize new project! Project plan needs fixing the list of third party libraries, and betas are not approved. It had to be started on monday, but I convinced teamlead to wait till wednesday, according to this roadmap:

The 14th of April has come, and there is still no release :(

It's maybe a timezones issue (it's already 10:00 in Moscow now, and it's night in America), but OTOH it wasn't an obstacle for Visual Studio 2010 team to release their product in time.

Please, publish 5.0 distribution package as soon as possible! And I will hope that my teamlead will not refused using your library by reason of it's delay.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your enthusiastic interest in Enterprise Library 5.0. We are as eager to get the release out as you are. Right now, we are going through the final quality gates for v5.0 and will be releasing soon (likely next week).

Please note, that the key word in the roadmap blog post is "tentative".

Also, we've been making the source code of the library available throughout the project. You can take the latest code drop and build it yourself if you are under such extreme time pressure.
