I hope in a week or so. We made a decision to go beta, just time is yet
an issue.

No need :) But it is recommended to do a nightly backup, so in case you
just don't have a luck with some image, you can restore one day old one.

FYI, the XML based persistency is on the way. SIXX based is already
ready for testing, but we'd like even better, more human readable and
Smalltalk independent content storage, so that it will be easily
transferable to some other CMS. To minimize "vendor" lock therefore :)
