-(Yes, the current "stable" release is a little long in the tooth.
-In practice, most everyone uses the testing pre-releases,
-because our testing methodology gives us a pretty good
-track record of not breaking things from release to release.)
+The current stable and latest release is 0.97, released 17 May 2007.
 </p>
 
 <h2>Upcoming Releases</h2>
 
-Take these with a huge grain of salt,
-this is very rough planning
-and subject to change.
+SCons is putting in place a new release team of interested developers.
+Expect this section to be updated once
+that team has hammered out a release schedule.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
