I'm hoping soon. Very soon, it's got to the point where I physically can't invest into my forts in fear of the new version being released and then me having to abandon world :c

As I recall, he once released a then-new version on the first of April, so I'll predict April 1st. 5,000 dorfbucks!

INB4 "in 2-3 months".
Hell, even the JOKES about people saying "in 2-3 months" are getting stale now. Let's just say it will take a shitton of time. There were people who had actually predicted the next release for March... of 2013.

It will come, eventually, I guess.

May 5th, Bay12 Servers crashes. Every person who got a dl gets a Blue Screen of Death.
May 6th everything is ok and a new version is uploaded.

That was Toady making that estimate actually, iirc :>

Sometime between when it's not done and slightly after it's done.

I'm actually guessing between april 1st and 9th.  1st because it was awesome last time there was a major release on the first, and the 9th arbitrarily because it's my BDay.

August. I suspect (hope?) bugfixing will take longer than a lot of y'all are giving credit for.

It's hard to tell because Toady is already fixing bugs as he goes. If he spots a bug while testing some new feature, he usually fixes it.

Indeed, and he's also only going to fix the most obvious and really bad ones. The rest are up to us discover and be fixed after the first release.

I bet he will announce that the release date will be announced to be April 2, on April 1.

I'm betting he'll do something different just for the fun of proving us all wrong.

(hopefully I've anti-jinxed us now)

I suspect the release is pretty soon. Toady seems to have been fixing the worst of the bugs as features were implemented.

First of april (again) is not impossible.
More likely sometime mid april or early may.

Let's just say it will take a shitton of time.

To get through 6 things and maybe a month of bugfixing? Nah. Ooh, ooh, imma predict how long each part of the list remaining:

Depot-to-depot: 0-2 weeks.
Liaison: 1-5 days.
Information screen: 2-10 days.
Vampires/Gods ruling civilizations: 1-2 weeks
Debugging: 1-3 months.

So my range is May 4-August 7, 2014.

...That's awfully wide.
