I think the last update was that it would be available last week.
Does anyone know if it is available now?
Since it isn't announced on the front page and the link on the download page still points to 2.7.1; No, it's not available yet.
You can download the 2.0-ongoing svn if you want "the nearest thing to 2.8" right now.
I guess I rather wait for the official launch then, should not be much longer.
