“Work continues on the 777, with dealing with traits and system validation being the operative mode for the week. We’ve got been packing particulars and options into this new flagship product and in part- because of this we aren’t but previewing it for you. I wish to give the modelers a bit extra time to get issues the place they need them, and I think we are going to start the preview course of in shut proximity to when the ship goes into beta testing.
Getting into beta all the time results in fairly a bit of debate surrounding “how lengthy will that take?” This dev cycle is a bit uncommon in that the code staff received approach out forward of the modeling staff, so we have now been engaged in an amazing quantity of testing and cleanup that we usually do not get to do till after beta testing begins. I believe this may bear fruit within the beta cycle and hopefully that may result in a shorter beta engagement.”
