Things have been in a lull for some time.  As I've seen it, there's 
basically two things remaining:

* Ralph (rillian) needs to sort out the remaining suggested bitstream 
changes and release a Alpha-3

* The bitstream spec, in the form of a python example decoder, needs to 
be finished.  I've started on this, but it's going to take an overall 
effort to complete as I'm just beginning to learn the codec myself.

After these two things are done, and provided that there are no more 
nessesary changes to the bitstream, Beta (thus bitstream freeze) should 
be just around the corner.  I'm personally predicting late spring'ish.
