    6.0 will 'drop' at the end of December, but there will be at least one more 5.9.x release before then.

    6.0 will probably be most noted for not being a beta release. It's pretty much what we've been working toward since the 5.0 days, with all the beta steps in between (.5, .6, .7, .8, .9) to rebalance, restructure, repair, and repackage the NC. Hopefully 6.0 will be the definitive release for Co8.

    As to WotGS, that seems doubtful at this time, unfortunately. Time is getting short.

    I think Gaear deserves retirement after 6.0 is released.

    An emphatic NO!

    I'm still trying to budget time to get back into ToEE and I love what's been done since the last time I played (5.0).

    Not to be a Balloon Popper or anything, but it's likely that 6.0 will need a lot of of work. That's just the way things are.

    And I'm not sure that the modding will stop even then. :p

    Well the idea all along has been to work out the bugs in the beta releases, then release the end result as the real thing, so there should not be a surplus of new bugs (particularly as 6.0 will probably not feature anything new). That said, I'm sure there will still be bugs. Hopefully few and not major.

    Yes, if 6.0 contains no new material, there's a chance it will be relatively free of bugs. But a bug fix is new material, so unless 5.99999 is bug-free already... ;)

    Besides, "no new material" is pretty unlikely in and of itself. :p

    The few remaining bugs are initial original and would require massive Temple.dll changes, if then. You have to go with what the game-engine provides or write a new engine. Which is in progress.
