Where's the beef?

err, I mean beta? Wasn't mandrak^H^Hiva supposed to release a 2006 beta 1 on the 15th? I've not seen any mention of it on the cooker mailing list or sign on the mirrors. Seems they are having some troubles, but that's a business as usual (for any developing distro). They were having some mirror syncing problems a few days back, I experienced this first hand when I tried to update my cooker install as well as some conflict with kde packages. There might be some shorewall bug problems, there's some mention of libtool gcc compatibility, and some grub conflicts a day or two ago. Anyway, I keep looking for a beta everyday. Somebody poke me if they see it.
