Sorry for the long time without any news from me!
This is just a quick note to let you know we are still working hard here on Moodle 2.0 and we're getting really close to Moodle 2.0 RC1 now. We're expecting it early next week. Full details will be provided then, of course.
The main things we're currently working on are restoring backups, course files, hubs, and about 100 other little issues.
If all goes well, moodle.org will be upgraded to 2.0 RC1 too. That'll be interesting!
