In case anyone is wondering what is happening regarding NAM 40 and the status of the REW, some REW components were submitted and included in Build 02 for NAM 40, which went out for testing within the team at the end of January (and is our current build).  Unfortunately, we determined that it was not going to be possible for those components to be brought up to a releasable state for this cycle.

NAM 40 has officially gone into a "feature freeze" as of February 5th (after which no point no new features can be added, and things that cannot be worked out are shelved for a later cycle).  As there is a bumper crop of other features that are nearing a point where they'll soon be ready for public consumption, the plan is to go ahead and finish those up, and allow the REW to re-enter the release stream at some point in the near future.

Particularly given our new release strategy, the REW not being part of NAM 40 is not going to slow that project down.  The REW will still take the same amount of time, it's just that it'll have a different version number attached (no guarantees on exactly which number that will be), and you'll get other new NAM features to enjoy in the meanwhile, rather than having to wait on those as well.

We know this project is quite anticipated, but we want to make sure we do it right, and want to thank all the NAM enthusiasts in the community for their continued patience.

Oh well! At least we get to see and share snapshots of what we can see and what we will eventually see in NAM 4x, ....or 5x.
