    January 15, 2005 is just about here. Cited as the projected release date
    after 4 "no-gos", the world holds its collective breath to see if Phase One
    can "get it up" (Capture One version 3.6 for Windows, on their site, of
    course). They might be able to salvage part of their reputation if they can
    get it rolling now, but if they skip this release date, as they have the
    past four or five, the is no longer any hope. We should know the fate of the
    planet in just a few hours.

    If there is no release (and we certainly DO NOT expect to see a release
    today), it will be interesting to see if they actually post a message on
    their forum(s) regarding the delay or if they figure everybody is so
    accustomed to their delays that it is not even worth posting anymore. Or
    maybe everybody has found alternate software and no one really cares that
    much about Phase One / Capture One anymore and their continuing tales of
    woe.

    The "new" new release date is Jan 17. (Good luck- I'm not holding my
    breath!) What does it all mean? Had they released the program last month
    (or soon after the Canon 20D hit the shelves), Capture One would have been
    the predominent raw conversion software and most likely the industry leader.
    The release of Windows 3.6 would have been considered a milestone for Phase
    One. Now, being so late (and still not available as of this writing), all
    Windows version 3.6 of Capture One will be is a footnote in the history of a
    once well-respected company. Rather than a "new beginning", their inability
    to produce a quality product in a timely manner puts them more in the
    position of the "beginning of the end" of Phase One as the coveted raw
    conversion solution. Just my two cents.

    This is supposed to be released sometime on Jan 17-- around midnight Denmak
    time, early evening in the U.S.A. They have been working on this for over
    four months and still unable to release it until very late in the day. I
    think that this is going to be a bug-ridden dog-of-a-program if they have to
    keep working on it til the last possible minute. How does a company like
    Phase One stay in business? They must be heavily subsidized by the Danish
    government.

    Well maybe this will give them a chance to find the bugs before they release
    the version with E300 support? :)

    Are people this impatient? One month and it's not worth owning?
