Why has Alfred & rest of Immunet crew been absent from the forum several weeks?

 

Well as Orlando said, We have some other duties to work out first and the forum seems to be fine.

Orlando is a part of the Immunet team and he will tell/guide/help you as much as you want. He can always contact one of us others if he is in doubt :)

Thanks for the reply. I guess my point is there is no news or update on the new beta. What's going on with it? When can we expect a release of the final version?

Lots decisions are still being made; I guess one of the reasons I'm being quite on the forums. I'll update the Beta topic with some status.
