the release team of version 4.5 today decided to postpone the release of
beta1 for one week.

According to the release plan of the 4.5 release, beta1 would ship next
week on November 10th (Wednesday), which would also mark the start of
the feature freeze phase.

Because some projects will gain some special focus during the next week
(file abstraction layer = FAL will have a code sprint from 11th to 14th)
and after discussing several alternatives, the release team decided to
postpone the beta1 release for one week.

=> 4.5 beta1 postponed to 17th November <=

The release plan has been updated accordingly [1].

The remaining schedule is kept unchanged: This means we will be shipping
beta2 two weeks after beta1 (1st December), beta3 three weeks later
(22nd December). The release of 4.5.0 final is still scheduled for 26th
January 2011.

Several projects will thus gain an extra opportunity to get finished in
time for the LTS 4.5 release, e.g.:

    * new Extension Manager
    * ExtJS trees
    * Super search
    * Grid view
    * Link validator
    * SwiftMailer API

If any other project is in the "finishing phase", please get in touch
with the release team (Ernesto Baschny and Steffen Kamper) so that we
can consider giving them extra attention.
