It is down to semantics a bit, beta 1 ~ .91, it doesn't really matter.  I think 
version 1 is probably 3-6 months away (maybe less or more...).

For the translations I think we need some very easy to follow instructions 
(especially on windows), I'll take a look soon.  I may have a go at the 
Icelandic translation as well!...  If we get a simple to follow system we can 
send a few emails out and hopefully get lots of progress.
