Yes we are in the final stages of Beta build now
i am currently working on the user front end, settings, profile stuff. etc/ really not much here but just getting the basics in for now.
Announce has been undergoing tests at my Dev board and files are being shred successfully so that is good news
Have a bunch of Lang bits and template things to iron out but overall we are very close, probably not this year as it is almost over but Jan 2019 looks 99% now.
