Hi devs,

As you may have just seen, we've just released the first beta of GROMACS
5.0. Many thanks for all your hard work, coding, reviewing and testing!

There's a number of features still to complete, so we hope to do another
beta as a Christmas present ;-) Code not yet present in gerrit has an
extremely low chance of making it into 5.0, but 5.1 won't be a year away

Then, by about the end of the first week of January there will be a hard
freeze on 5.0 - no new features, and only bug fixes and documentation. We
need that stability to do hard-core testing of correctness and speed before
the final release. At about that time there will be a release-5-0 branch
that splits off for the bug fixes.

All going well, we can meet our new objective of time-based releases, on or
about February 1, 2014!
