    Yes. 3.1.0 Beta 4.

    There are patches being pushed out every day on the ClientExec forums, so even with the delay it's nice to know they are actively working on it.

    According to Alberto they hope to have the final beta version out in about a week. I personally think they will be a few more before its bug free as the current version seems to be pretty buggy at the moment.
