Yes, very sad.

That's exactly what I was thinking this time last year, when I figured it would be out by late this year, now I've given up waiting. I think people are dreaming if they think it will be out of Beta in only 4 more months.
And I think it's rediculous the simple things that don't work in 0.9.6, like every other time I change preferences, and try to click "OK" to save the changes, nothing happens, and I have to exit preferences and select them again. Simple things like this should have been working fine a year ago.
