You may have noticed that it’s now July 21st and despite the information listed on the Moodle 2.0 Roadmap at Moodle.org, the long awaited Moodle 2.0 has not been released. Originally there were upwards of 8 Preview Releases scheduled, but after only four Martin Dougiamas updated the community with a call for QA testers in order to release the software on time as “Release Candidate 1” or “RC1”,
If all goes well, it’s looking like we should be able to hit a usable and feature-complete state for Moodle 2.0 in a couple of weeks, around July 20. You can follow the the main blockers in the tracker to see progress towards this. Unfortunately, I don’t think we can call that a final release yet, because the testing period for much of it has not been long enough, so at this point we’ll call it Moodle 2.0 Release Candidate 1 (RC1).

So unless you’re using a Preview Release or are planning to adopt the RC1, the wait will be a little longer. Why? For the sake of quality; which is a good thing.
