Absolutely, thanks Sylvain.

Now, guess which question is asked most if you talk about Cocoon: when will
2.1 released? There are many users already using Cocoon 2.1-dev and they
want an official release.
With an alpha release we show that we are trying to reach this.

I think, if the flow problems are solved we could also make a beta release
as it seems that most other parts are stable now.

The problem with a release is, that I guess (although I haven't tested it
yet) that the build system is not correctly building the distribution
anymore. And we have to decide what the binary dist will be etc. With
the recent changes (which are excellent) of the blocks and mocks, this
has become a little bit more difficult. So we need some work to be done
here.
