The highly anticipated v1.0 release of Elgg the popular opensource social networking system is upon the horizon, a post by Dave Tosh on the new Elgg News Blog would indicate that the official release will happen after a final round of testing.
Quote: Dave Tosh
Over the past few weeks some Elgg users and developers have been helping us beta test Elgg v1.0 on both the code and interface side of things. This has been a worthwhile process with the beta testers picking up on a few things that we had missed out/overlooked. All in all, feedback has been positive and we are working to implement some of the suggested changes. I would like to say thanks to those of you who have given up some of your valuable time to help with the testing, it is appreciated.
If you are waiting for the official release, it will happen once we have completed this testing phase.
