We are all patiently waiting for something official from MINIX.
Hopefully they were able to celebrate Chinese New Year but based on the current virus situation... I'm sure it dulled the festivities at the least.
I actually heard in some places the public celebrations were cancelled.
I hope the current health issue won't delay the release but at the same time I wouldn't be surprises.... it is only Feb.1st however.
I do recall you are a loyal MINIX user and I'm sure they appreciate your patience and understanding !
