Well then if what you say is true, and I do hope this is, why the hell would they promote the end of the beta as it the product had reached a revolutionnary stage ? Couldn't they just put off the beta tag and keep quiet ?
I mean, the only new feature that we have right now in this new version is... Facebook chat...
Why would they promote the end of the beta... Just make them stupid. Anyhow, I'm at work right now, just about to write down an article on that...not a kind one...
