I think the general plan outlined in the announcement is still
accurate. Beta test in Q2, launch in Q3. So, months.

We still have a few features to launch -- they are detailed in the
announcement, some back-end infrastructure to build, and some
scale-testing to do. We also need the servers.

Note: If your application is not a desktop app, it's not going to be
eligible for this first beta due to capacity constraints.
