Re: Ant release date set for BP1.3?
And I thought BP 1.3 just required 3.*
I have a test install of BP 1.3 running on WP 3.0.4 and another running 1.3 on WP 1.3 RC 2
@DJPaul will need to confirm that comment in the thread you link to.
As for release date, you should note the blog post by John James where he announced he was proceeding with some major refactoring of the core, the open tickets is not really indicative of the amount of work left to complete with this particular cycle, I doubt that 1.3 will be ready this side of Feb and ought to go to a RC stage for a little more rigorous testing for this particular release.
I would have thought regardless of release dates one can and should be starting to test ones themes / plugins under 1.3/3.1
